Accepting Applications: Council on Asian-Pacific Minnesotans (CAPM) 2011 Annual Awards

The Council on Asian-Pacific Minnesotans (CAPM) is requesting submissions for its 2011 Annual Award nomination process. Know of any outstanding Asian-Pacific Minnesotans making economic, humanitarian, or other contributions in your community? If ideas are hard to come by, consider learning about or taking part in efforts around the Asian Pacific Cultural Center, the Annual Heritage Month Dinner, or the annual Dragon Festival this summer. Perhaps you'll get to know someone who you may be inspired to nominate once this deadline rolls around next year. In the meantime, Happy Year of the Rabbit!
The Council on Asian-Pacific Minnesotans is currently seeking a diverse collection of nomination submissions for its 2011 Annual Leadership Awards. This is the time for community members to nominate and recognize one of their own. Please help us to honor an outstanding business owner, leader, organization, volunteer who has given themselves, their talents and resources to serve and better the Asian-Pacific community.

A committee of Council board members and community members will determine the number of awardees. The Award Ceremony will be held at the Council’s Annual Heritage Dinner on Friday, May 6, 2011, starting at 6:00 p.m. The location is still to be confirmed.
