On July 27th, 2017, members of the APEX board met with the board of OCA-GLA (Organization of Chinese Americans-Greater Los Angeles) in Chinatown, Los Angeles. Founded in 1973, OCA is a national organization dedicated to advancing the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans in the United States. Over the course of 44 years, OCA has grown to 80 chapters nationwide and is still actively participating in civic and national matters, striving to instill a sense of social responsibility in the APA community through leadership opportunities and community empowerment activities. APEX had a very productive interboard mixer with this wonderful organization!
