CAAPAE sponsors professional development and parent education conferences. The events are designed to promote the exchange of ideas among participants and to provide them with the information and contacts necessary to further their involvement in the education of Asian and Pacific Americans in California.

Our annual conferences bring together individuals from across the United States who share a common interest in Asian and Pacific American issues. The annual conference features workshops, intensive institutes, training sessions, discussion sessions, and panel presentations. We often welcome vendors that promote multiculturalism to showcase products that would enrich the community on our vast diversity. Each year's conference includes issues, challenges and opportunities facing Asian and Pacific American youth today.
