Political Appointments 101

Political appointments represent an important way to serve a presidential administration and influence the policy issues affecting our country. As the Korean American community continues to increase its civic engagement and political sophistication, having more Korean American political appointees will help our community shape the issues important to us and play a stronger role in the service of our country. Come out to this panel to learn more about the political appointments process and if a political appointment is right for you. Our panel of KA appointees will share their experiences and knowledge about the appointments process and why political appointments are important for our community.
