APEX Awards: Empowering the Community, Inspiring Change

Apexawards2012flyer fnlsm

On September 8th, 2012, APEX will hold its annual awards dinner at The Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown Hotel in Los Angeles. Our theme this year is “Empowering the Community. Inspiring Change."

The APEX board and membership have reached unprecedented levels, and we continue to strive for excellence in motivating and empowering individuals to not only give back, but to challenge themselves in reaching new heights in both their personal and professional goals.

Our annual awards gala will celebrate APEX’s past and present accomplishments in helping to build tomorrow’s leaders in the APA professional community. We will also recognize prominent Asian Pacific Americans who are opening doors for more leaders to rise.
