2010 southeast asian american leadership & advocacy training

The Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) is trying to get the word out about its 12th annual Southeast Asian American Leadership & Advocacy Training, happening July 18-20 in Washington, DC and August 15-17 in Long Beach, California. They're accepting applications now:

These trainings provide a forum for Southeast Asian American community leaders to participate in three days of activities that include advocacy education, leadership strategizing, collaborative networking, and relationship building with decision makers on issues that are specific to the Southeast Asian American community.

The trainings are open nation-wide to all members of the Southeast Asian American community and/or individuals currently working with the Southeast Asian American community.

SEARAC will cover the majority of hotel and travel costs for participants living outside of the training locations, but participants may be responsible for portions of their travel costs. California residents are strongly encouraged to apply to the Long Beach, CA training.

This sounds like a really valuable, worthwhile opportunity. The deadline to apply for the trainings are May 21 (Washington DC) and June 11 (Long Beach, CA). For more information, and to apply online (or download an application, go to the SEARAC website here.
