The Washington State on Asian Pacific American Affairs (CAPAA) is currently accepting applications for candidates interested in serving on the Commission. CAPAA has an advisory board of twelve governor-appointed commissioners representing the state’s diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
The Commission serves to improve the well-being of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders by ensuring their access to participation in the fields of government, business, education, health, and other areas.
If selected, the individual will examine and define issues pertaining to the rights and needs of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and make recommendations to the governor, Legislature, and state agencies with respect to desirable changes in program and law.
Commissioners serve on a voluntary basis and have the responsibility to inform communities about legislative activity, laws, and policies that affect their well-being.
Commissioners serve three-year terms. As part of their duties, Commissioners are expected to attend CAPAA’s public board meetings that are held five times a year around the state.
