As Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders become the fastest growing racial demographic in the United States, one of the unique challenges of the community is collaborating as a whole while embracing the diversity of dozens of ethnicities and hundreds of languages. This year’s convention will feature thought provoking workshops, plenaries that address hot-button issues, and events that honor those who empower the community for change. 

The theme for this year is I3: Innovate, Inspire, Ignite, in honor of the many youth and leadership development efforts that our chapter leads each year. We hope that each attendee will leave with fresh ideas and networks they develop at convention and deploy them in their local communities

This year, the OCA National Convention will take place August 3-5, 2017 in Sacramento, California at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento! 

Tens of thousands have participated and attended the OCA National Convention through the years, and we look forward to continuing to exceed the expectations of our members and convention partners through programs, workshops, events and activities designed to foster the next generations of APA community, government, business and corporate leaders. As an advocacy organization, we will also continue to commit ourselves to evolving and expanding our goals to excel within the dynamic APA communities and beyond.
