Regional Leadership Academy | Los Angeles, CA


The Los Angeles Regional Leadership Academy is a two-day leadership training program that develops leadership skills, promotes public service, and supports effective, impactful AAPI leaders. It delivers practical training and advice to those considering public office and local office-holders who seek higher office. APAICS hosts Regional Leadership Programs across the country in partnership with regional organizations. The Los Angeles Regional Leadership Academy will be convened in collaboration with the CA API Legislative Caucus Institute and the League of CA Cities Asian Pacific Islander Caucus.

As the city of Los Angeles alone is home to nearly half a million AAPIs from diverse perspectives and backgrounds, engaging and connecting with the community and political leaders in the Los Angeles area is crucial. From interactive workshops and guest speakers, participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to be an effective leader and create positive change through public service and civic engagement. They will also have the opportunity to develop relationships with distinguished leaders in government, nonprofit, and the private sector.
