APAC Special Announcements & Events: ESRI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

APAC INVITED TO SPEAK AT THE ESRI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCEc69cfbe0-fb9f-4d9f-ae5c-1f6391e3e74c

Board of Directors Tim Nguyen (Chairman) and Vince Vasquez (Vice Chairman) will be presenting at the ESRI International conference, the world’s largest event dedicated to geographic information system (GIS) technology, a powerful computer system transforming a wide-range of industries & initiatives including: urban planning, business expansion, security management, and community development. This year’s event is expected to draw over 15,000 attendees.
Specifically, the APAC board executives will speak on using data and analytics to advance civic engagement in the Asian community. Topics include their work during the 2010-2011 Redistricting efforts, which included in-depth analysis of heavily-concentrated Asian residential neighborhoods such as Mira Mesa, and business clusters in the Convoy District.  This work resulted in the successful formation of the current San Diego City Council District 6 (and run towards history for the API community in 2014). The discussion will also focus on APAC’s get-out-to-vote initiative in City Council District 4, which led towards API voter turnout increasing 30%. They will also provide statistics regarding their research on demographic and economic trends about the region’s API community.

52eb3c71-5b39-473e-890f-79452158bbd6
A copy of their presentation will be posted online and through social media. Please stay tuned.  More information about the conference can be found at: www.esri.com
