The Virginia Asian Advisory Board (“VAAB”) presents their Town Hall Meeting at the Philippine Cultural Center (“PCC”) in Virginia Beach on March 28, 2013 from 6:30 – 6:30 pm.
The VAAB was created by Executive Order by former Governor Mark Warner in 2001 and codified into law in June of 2003. The premise of the VAAB was to enhance business relations in the plethora of Asian communities as well as providing more information on other germane issues to the Asian demographic.
The Virginia Asian Advisory Board meets four times a year to discuss issues facing the Asian community in Virginia and develops an annual report to the Governor articulating their recommendations on matters such as business, trade, education and health.
The Board consists of twenty-one members appointed by the Governor: eighteen citizen members who shall represent business, education, the arts and government, at least eleven of whom shall be of Asian descent. Citizen members shall serve for a four-year term. (vaab.virginia.gov)
This event is free and open to the public.
