The 2017 conference will be held on Friday, April 21, 2017 at Alverno College. Please see the attached “Save the Date” flyer.

The goal of the conference is to provide career and post-secondary educational opportunities exposure to Southeast Asian-American high school students. As such, college and university representatives from throughout the state as well as business professional representatives will be present at the conference to meet with students. The Committee strongly believes that the Southeast Asian-American students at your high school will greatly benefit from this conference and are strongly encouraged to attend.

The conference is free for students. In addition, the conference will be arranging transportation to pick up students from your high school if there are enough students signed up to attend the conference by the deadline.
