In 1990, President George H.W. Bush designated the month of May as “Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.” This annual event celebrates the many cultures that embody Asian Pacific heritage.


Our team is working hard to build workshops and mentorship opportunities aimed towards improving the employment status of our members. Stay tuned.


Through banquets and happy hour, we work to connect you with like-minded employees of LA County. This is a great opportunity to meet Department Heads and make new friends.


We are planning engaging activities to assist our communities. From holiday donation fundraisers to providing aid to our friends on Skid Row, LACAAEA is proud to serve the county we call home.
