The Convention will provide a chance for Korean Americans of all generations and backgrounds to collaboratively discuss the latest issues affecting our community, as well as, highlight the legacy left by our ancestors. The Convention will kick-off with a Friday VIP Reception for KA Leaders, Speakers, and Special Guests. Then the Saturday Day Convention will feature panelists discussing:

  1. THE 152 KA IDENTITY: The Interplay and Dynamics of the 1.52 Korean-American Identity
  2. ENGAGING: The Meaning of Civic Engagement with 2014 Hot Topics (North Korea crisis, Comfort Women, and more)
  3. SERVING: Taking Care of Our Aging Senior Citizen Population in Asian Culture
  4. LEADING: Value of Mentoring with 2015 Mentorhip Opportunties & Sharing of Real Life Stories
  5. COALITION BUILDING: Ways to Improve Community Outreach (perspectives from KA groups, the CIA, etc.), and a special presentation by our State Farm Main Sponsor
  6. A Slice of L.I.F.E.: Lessons in Financial Education and a special presentation by our State Farm Main Sponsor

In this way, the Convention will provide a unique platform where the dynamics of both the pioneering & future generations will be examined through the perspectives of 152 Asian American leaders in a collaborative effort to build a strong network of informed and fully engaged Korean-American citizens.

이번 컨벤션에서는 여러분야에 계신 다양한 연령층의 제외 동포 여러분과 한인 사회의 고질적인 이슈와 최근 이슈에 대하여 토론 하고자합니다. 금요일 저녁 한인 지도자, 페널리스트 그리고 초대 손님을 위한 VIP환영회로 시작을 하여, 토요일 컨벤션에서는 다음과 같은 화제들로 페널리스트들과 함께 할 예정 입니다.

  1. 한인 152 세대의 정체성:한인 1.52 세대간의 상호작용과 역학(1세대 와 2세대, 혼혈, 양자의 시각)
  2. 참여(Engaging): 2014 화제에 대한 시민관여의 의의(남북 관계, 위안부 문제 등)
  3. 봉사(Serving): 아시아 문화에서 바라보는 노인 인구
  4. 선도(Leading): 2015 멘토 프로그램의 가치와 실생활
  5. 공동체(Coalition building): 지역사회 봉사에 대한 개선 방안 (한인 그룹과 CIA 의 시각)
  6. A Slice of L.I.F.E.: Lessons in Financial Education and a special presentation by our main sponsor Statefarm

이를 통하여 이번 컨벤션은 1.52세대들에게 선구자로써의 필요한 안목과 아시아인의 관점에서 강한 연대의식을 만들수 있는 틀을 제공하려 합니다.
