Welcome to APAPA Tri-Valley Chapter (TVC)!
Started in 2014, APAPA TVC is an energetic and committed team with passion for our community. For the past year, along with its youth group, APAPA-TVC has done a tremendous amount of work. We introduced candidates to our community, registered voters and encouraged them to vote, hosted educational forums for the community, promoted APAPA internship program, promoted culture exchange between San Ramon and Weifang in Shandong province China, and volunteered in communities near and far. On Feb 28th 2015, we successfully held our grand opening and lunar new year celebration Gala. More than 250 people attended our event including over 30 federal, state and local elected officials.
In the past 10 years, Tri-Valley becomes one of the most popular places for API families. Now nearly 20% of the population in Tri-Valley is Asian and the number is still growing. Most of the immigrants moved here were new immigrants. Usually for Asian people educated broad, we are great in technical world, but public speech is not our strength. Because of that, TVC started APAPA-TVC Toastmaster club on 09/13 with the intention to help people improve their public speech and leadership skill. The club meets every 2nd and 4th Sunday at Buffalo Wild Wings in San Ramon.
Although we have accomplished a lot in the past year, we could not have done it alone. Thank you APAPA headquarters, Bay Area Region leaders and other APAPA chapters and CAPA for their generous support. Also thank APAPA TVC leadership team including board members and directors. Last but not least, thank you all of our volunteers, I hope that we will continue work together to build a community that we all love and enjoy.
