Impact Review and 2018 Strategy Salon Discussion

Dear LF Member,

With this note, I would like to express my gratitude in sharing your valuable time in Los Angeles on Thursday at the formal launch of LFLA. We are pleased several of you expressed interest in formally joining our national consortium. If you would like to join LF, please email me and I would be happy to follow up with you individually.

Membership gives you access to join all of our national events, as well as, an opportunity to form lasting relationships with other government and private sector leaders. You will also be able to work with them on increasing AAPI leadership at a national level while making a lasting impact on improving the United States.

Leaders Forum 2018 in Los Angeles - Congressman Ted Lieu, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Ed Markey, Senator Jeff Merkley, Senator Chris Van Hollen, Susan J. Blumenthal

Leaders Forum 2018 in Los Angeles – Congressman Ted Lieu, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Ed Markey, Senator Jeff Merkley, Senator Chris Van Hollen, Susan J. Blumenthal

Thanks to our gracious lunch host, Nanxi Liu, (CEO of Enplug) we had a great intimate discussion in person with Senator Jeff Merkley from Oregon. He is working hard in a bitterly divided Washington to end the gridlock in policy creation. Topics we touched upon were bi-partisan government efficiency, DACA/legal immigration & one of LF’s key priorities – election security. Existing and prospective members also had a chance to share their stories and network with one another in a relaxed setting at Nanxi’s gorgeous new home.

At the Ritz Carlton Penthouse, we were kindly hosted by Robert Roche, (Founder and President of Roche Enterprises) and his family at their terrific downtown home. At the cocktail reception, we welcomed two other senators, Ed Markey from Massachusetts, which has a growing AAPI population and Chris Van Hollen, who is head of the DSCC from the state of Maryland.




We ended with a visit by Congressman Ted Lieu from LA, who stayed for a private dinner with some of 12 our LF standout members. All 3 national leaders were happy to network with our AAPI leader attendees and take photos. Leaders Forum was pleased to bring these interactions at no cost to our members and prospective members to both increase AAPI exposure and educate our attendees.

Here is where we plan to have impact for 2018 and we hope you will engage:

  1. Election security & becoming the go-to AAPI think tank to federal officials
  2. Preparing a senate presentation on The Importance of AAPI Business Leadership for America’s future
    (Job creation, cyber security, Women execs & 2 other topics TBD)
  3. Making in impact on AAPI participation in Census 2020
  4. LF mentors for new members
  5. Additional high level access events around the nation including DC in May and LA again within 6 months

We hope you will join us in advancing our important endeavors.

Please contact me ([email protected]) or Michelle Graves ([email protected]) if you have any questions or comments.

The time to Lead is now!

Best Regards,
