OCA NATIONAL CONVENTION

Join us and the host chapter OCA-Las Vegas from August 2-5 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. This year's Convention theme is "*GOTV2 - Get Out To Vegas, Get Out The Vote*." As OCA continues to move forward with its mission, the theme will not only focus on efforts to ensure that voices of APAs are amplified through electoral participation, but as an opportunity for us to engage more deeply on a number of pivotal issues for our communities.

This annual convention draws over hundreds of APAs from around the country and is one of the largest gatherings of APAs in the U.S. This year's convention will feature:
* Workshops and Plenaries
* Youth Recognition and Chapter Awards Luncheons
* Community Resource Lounge
* Youth and College Tracks
* Small Business Track: Business Success for APA Entrepreneurs
* B3 Emerging APA Professionals and Employee Resource Groups
* Welcome Reception
* Friday Night Community Reception: Vegas Starts Here
* OCA Gala Awards
If you're planning on attending the convention, I will be moderating the panel discussion, "Post, Tweet, and Blog- The Influence of Online Organizing" on Saturday at 2:00pm. Please stop by and say hello! For further information, and to register for the convention, go to the OCA National website here.
