The purpose of the Asian Pacific American Association (APAA) is to build bridges of communication among BNL Asian Pacific American personnel through cultural programs, food festivals, picnics, cultural education, concerts, and other similar cultural/social activities. We work to create community among Lab and other similar organizations through scholarships, fund-raising, colloquia and conferences aimed at educating Lab staff and the community about issues of concern to Asian Pacific Americans, and to support Brookhaven Lab in shaping, improving, and achieving diversity goals and objectives.
