President's Message


Dear Friends,


The holiday season has arrived!  APABA Colorado is once again partnering with the APABA Colorado Foundation for Colorado Gives Day on December 4th.  On that day, all funds donated to the Foundation by APABA members will go to the Asian Pacific Development Center (APDC) and up to $10,000 will be matched by the Foundation.  As most of you know, APDC is an incredible organization that provides numerous services and resources to not just Asian Pacific residents throughout Colorado, but also the immigrant and refugee community at large.  If you want to learn more about APDC, please visit their website: 


I hope you will join your fellow APABA members in donating to APDC.  For ease, you can complete the process today to have your donation scheduled for December 4th:


The APABA board hopes to see you at the next general meeting gathering on December 3rd at 5:30PM.  We will be meeting at The Kitchen Next Door in Union Station.  If you’re unable to join us, I wish you a happy holiday season!  We hope to see you in the new year at one of the following events:


                January 17 at 12:00PM: APABA Lunch @ Imperial Chinese

                February 20 at 5:30PM: APABA/APALSA Happy Hour @ TBD


As Sumi Lee is finalizing the details for our annual banquet in April 2019, please let her know if you’re interested in assisting by emailing her at We’re excited to announce some changes to the usual banquet festivities!


On that note, some of the other diversity bar associations are holding their annual banquets/galas.  Please join us in supporting them if you’re able to do so and let me know if you’re planning to attend.


As always, if you attend a legal event or community event, please let us know so we can include it on our Facebook page.  Please email the photo and a caption to Clark Yeh at


If you have any comments or would like to become more involved, please let me know by emailing me at  I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
