1-Day Session w/ Commonwealth Seminar was an intensive training session focused on teaching Asian American leaders how the legislative process really works. By giving an insiders’ view of the process, our goal was to encourage diverse leaders to become effective advocates and to pursue careers in public service.

The Commonwealth Seminar hosts a training program that lasts six weeks for a total of three sessions each year. Participants spend one evening a week in interactive seminars with Administration officials, legislators, legislative aides, media personalities, and lobbyists. Click here to learn more:
