 LOS ANGELES—The National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA), a coalition of 31 national organizations, recently elected a new executive committee that will spearhead its efforts in achieving greater policy presence and impact for Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Hawaiian (AANHPI) communities.

And leading this new executive committee is Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), AFL-CIO executive director Gregory Cendana, who became the first Filipino and the first openly gay NCAPA chairperson.

Cendana and his fellow executive committee members were elected to their respective positions at the NCAPA’s annual retreat early this December. They will serve two-year terms and are expected to lead the coalition in advancing AANHPI interests in America.
