US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC) was founded in 1984 as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization to educate, train, develop, and advocate for equal opportunity for Asian American (includes East, South and Southeast Asian and Pacific Islanders) businesses, professionals, and business organizations in the corporate and government procurement market place; and to promote business between Asian Americans and their business partners in corporations, government agencies, and in the small and minority business community.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, USPAACC has regional chapters in California, New York, Texas, Illinois, Georgia and the Maryland-Virginia-Washington, DC National Capital area.
For over 27 years, USPAACC has served as the “go to” place for Asian American large, medium and small businesses for opportunities to sell to major corporations and governments at the federal, state and local levels; and for corporations and governments to identify Asian American suppliers in the United States and abroad.
Through extensive outreach, advocacy, educational, training, technical assistance, and business development counseling programs, USPAACC has created an environment and platform where Asian American businesses could network, exchange ideas, share best practices, procurement, technical and marketing information with each other, and form teams and joint ventures together.
USPAACC’s Asian American Business Certification program provides corporate and government supplier diversity and small business programs with qualified and quality suppliers they seek.
In 1999, USPAACC introduced the One-on-One Prescheduled Business Match-Making Program to the supplier market. Since then, it has successfully linked thousands of large, medium and small businesses to major corporations and federal, state, and local government agencies, leading to contract awards.
USPAACC also invests in the community’s future leaders through an annual College Scholarship Awards program. Each year, over $100,000 in educational benefits is given to some of the most talented and hardworking college-bound high school seniors who have demonstrated academic achievement, community service and financial need.
CelebrAsian, the largest annual national Asian American business conference in the United States, brings together some of the best and brightest Asian American entrepreneurs in business, science and technology, engineering, communications, advertising and media, manufacturing, transportation, finance and insurance, all under one roof, to network with procurement and marketing professionals from major corporations and governments.
As a thought leader with a track record of business accomplishments, strong partnerships with corporations, government, and Asian American businesses, USPAACC is poised to raise the bar to yet another level.
USPAACC celebrates a quarter-century of advocacy for economic growth.
