The APAICS National Leadership Academy for Elected Officials was established in 1999 to provide Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) elected officials with the skills and resources needed to excel in their current office as well as prepare them for opportunities to advance into higher office. The National Leadership Academy brings together a bipartisan group of promising AAPI political leaders from state legislatures, city councils, and local governing bodies all across the country to Washington, D.C.
The 2018 National Leadership Academy was designed for current elected officials seeking re-election or advancement into higher office, and individuals who planned to run within the next two years. The program consisted of interactive leadership training with topics ranging from planning your campaign, developing and telling your campaign story, base building and outreach and fundraising strategies. The program also included special guest speakers and panels.
