The 8th Annual MAUVSA Advance Conference will be held on Friday, February 8th, 2019 to Sunday, February 10th, 2019 at Falls Church Marriott Fairview Park in Northern Virginia. MAUVSA Advance Conference is our biggest event of the year and it seeks to bring together over 350 young professionals from Asian-American communities around the Mid-Atlantic region and neighboring regions for the purpose of empowering these individuals with the right tools to become successful leaders in society.
This year’s conference theme is “Breaking Barriers.” As minorities in America, we face daily struggles such as ongoing immigration threats, balancing American culture with one’s own, or seeing the lack of representation in the media. Our progression as minorities can feel stagnant at times. Throughout conference, we hope that attendees will be inspired to come together and break through the barriers to emerge as prominent community leaders.
This three-day conference is packed with engaging keynote speakers, popular entertainment, and invaluable networking opportunities. In addition, a series of insightful workshops will be offered to attendees. Many workshops offered during past conferences include exploration of leadership styles, entrepreneurship, project management, and cultural identity.
