Capital Region Executive Leadership Mission

On March 12-15, 2017 the Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce partnered with Region Business led 86 of our regional leaders to Washington DC for the Capital Region Executive Leadership Mission.  Host Congresswoman Doris O. Matsui, and Chair, Mayor Darrell Steinberg led our delegation in sharing our region’s priorities with the expectation to enhance our region’s future.
