The CalAsian Chamber is committed to continually inviting new voices into our conversations, and we are excited to have introduced several new board members to our team in 2021. The addition of these corporate and community leaders to our board will complement the work we do in the new year, and we look forward to the new opportunities these connections will undoubtedly provide.
