Economic Policy Summit 2020

Community/Membership Event Registration Website available ( November 2019 ) This year AAPI Legislative Reception offered the community a non-partisan political platform engaging state and national legislators in informing the VACC members, the AAPI small businesses’ on legislative issues impacting businesses, Asian American Pacific Islander communities and our state future growth.   As VACC is the voice for the AAPI business community , we successfully advocate on behalf of AAPI business owners through its visibility at the General Assembly, on the Hill, and through our statewide network of strategic partnerships.
