Asian American Architect Engineers Association

2017 AAa/e President’s Message

I am excited to be serving as President of the Asian American Architects and Engineers.  The AAa/e, now in its 40th year has continued to provide valuable resources to support the needs of professionals working in the A/E/C industry.  I would like to thank this past Board of Directors, Advisory Council, members, and supporters of our organization for their contributions. The work you have done has put our organization in the right direction.   I am committed to continue this work by providing a platform that enables professional growth, business development and networking opportunities, and empowering professionals involved in the built environment.

This year, my primary focus will be to continue to move our organization forward through focused attention in the following areas of our Strategic Plan:

  1. Promote the highest levels of professional development amongst AAa/e members
  2. Provide effective networking opportunities for members to build strong professional relationships in the AEC industry
  3. Optimize outreach opportunities from major government agencies
  4. Maximize member involvement in leadership roles
  5. Enhance our professional services and contributions to our communities

In order for this to happen we need your active engagement in our organization to help us achieve our goals. We have a continued focus in 2017 for increased involvement and collaboration with our members. We have a number of committees within the organization that is looking for members to get involved and provide input, including:

  1. Awards Banquet Committee
  2. Communications Committee
  3. Membership Committee
  4. Professional Development Committee
  5. Programs Committee

If you have thought about being more involved, I would like to personally ask you to take the opportunity now. We cannot do this alone. You can express your interest by contacting us at

Our 2017 kickoff event is our Annual Membership Appreciation Night on Thursday, February 2, 2017 at the Japanese American Cultural Community Center – I look forward to seeing you there and hearing more about how the AAa/e Association can better serve you.
