I’d like to make another plug for another very worthwhile Asian American student conference: MAASU (Midwest Asian American Student Union):
The MAASU Spring Conference will be held in Lawrence, Kansas from March 28-29, 2008, which will bring together around 600 Asian-American college students across the Midwest.
The goal of the conference will be to discuss and share issues, strategies and programs that support Asian-American student organizations. The program will provide students with networking opportunities, insights, and motivation to take back to their respective campuses.
Our goal will be accomplished by having a two-day format featuring an institute, workshops and speakers addressing the issues facing the Asian Pacific Islanders American (APIA) community. Conference participants will have a chance to network and discuss what
is happening on their campus and abroad.
On Friday night, we will have The Friday Night Variety Show, which consists of unique talents from different schools across the Midwest. On Saturday, we will feature various workshops that will consist of Asian American issues. For example, some of the topics are Interracial Relationships, Coming Out in Double Minority: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Asian Americans & Legal Issues.
Also, students will get an opportunity to participate in a career fair. During the evening, we will feature Magdalen-Hsu Li, Danny Cho, Parry Shen, and the Ken Oak Band in our Saturday night banquet. Many of these people are prominent musicians and actors in the entertainment industry.
