A MESSAGE FROM CAPA PRESIDENT RYAN ROSARIO
My vision for CAPA is to see more and more people from Michigan's Asian Pacific American community achieve success in life, in business and in helping develop leaders that can inspire others. By working together, CAPA strives to bring awareness to the public of how strong and united the APA community is.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of many skilled and talented individuals with backgrounds. In this diversity is where we can all find strength. Through beneficial partnerships and working together, the APA community can and will achieve great things this year and in the years to come.
Though we may have different opinions and ideas, we all have one thing in common - the noble desire to serve the Asian Pacific American community as a whole. CAPA is committed to this goal and we have a great team that demonstrates this. We are a work in progress and making strides each and everyday as we serve our community.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, I look forward to seeing more new members share their time, talent and passion to help make our APA community grow as ONE with CAPA.
