Message from the President

Dear Colleague, 


I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your APISBMA President,  I am also excited to have a fantastic board to work with for the 2019 year.


My primary goals for this term are the following: 


  1. Improving relationship with state and national organizations serving API elected and appointed officials, such as the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS). 
  2. Increasing learning and networking opportunities for our members through mixers and events. 
  3. Greater impact and visibility on policy issues at CSBA.
  4. Build up a better resources center for our APISBMA member, our Asian parents and our Asian students. 


We had two events this year in both Southern and Northern California and the topic was Vaping and School Climate. We would love to have greater involvement from the members of APISBMA, and recognize our own need to diversify our ranks and draw more participants in. If you would like to learn more, have a greater role in APISBMA or have any suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me at sophiatse1@yahoo.com or subscribe to our mailing list. As a volunteer organization we are only as strong as the involvement of our members. Thank you for all that you do for our students and the community. 


Sincerely, 


Sophia Tse
