APAS, a 35 year old Asian organization, is on the brink of being permanently destroyed.

The currentExecutive Committee and some board members have decided to go ahead and destroy what has been an icon identifying Asian Heritage and Culture in the greater New Orleans area! Their intention is toseek votes at a general membership meeting todissolve APASonSeptember 23, and simultaneously liquidate assets of over $100,000.Only general members can dissolve APAS. This meeting is crucial to the survival of APAS.

Just imagine what will happen if APAS is dissolved forever...the New Orleans Metro area:

· will NOT have a place for Asian communities to have a voice

· will NOT have the annual Asian Heritage Festival that brings together different Asian communitiesand mainstream

· will NOT have opportunities for the general public to learn more about Asian cultures.

· will NOT have a place for future generation to showcase theirrichcultureand heritage

· will NOT have anavenuefor organizations to reachout tothe Asian communities

· will NOT have an organizationthat brings together families with adopted Asian childrenand Asian communities

Most importantly, there will beNO place for different Asian communities to come together as one.Our community will becomefragmented and disconnected.

The following link is a videomade in 2009that highlights 30 years of accomplishments.

NOW is the time for you to act and help usto save this institution!!!If not, APAS will disappear and future generations may never understand the rich culture and heritage of the Asian communities in the Metro New Orleans area. The future of APAS depends on you!!
