On behalf of the KAC Metro Atlanta Board and National Convention Committee, we express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for joining us at the 2019 KAC National Convention.

We hope that you not only gained knowledge on various topics but also formed meaningful connections that will positively impact your personal and professional lives going forward. 

As our Atlanta community continues to identify needs and engage in deeper discussions, we look forward to seeing the progress of Korean American communities nationwide as we work together to embrace the tasks and challenges ahead. 

It has been our pleasure to serve as your host, and we wish you all a very safe and happy holiday season. Whether you are a local resident of Atlanta or visiting again the future, we look forward to seeing you again.

After a long day of informative panels and much discussion, this year’s Gala Dinner was a celebration with over 200 guests. In addition to remarks by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea Young-Jun Kim and Georgia State Representative Sam Park, the audience was treated to a special poem written by Mr. Sunny Park that relayed a heartwarming message between the generations present. Mr. Keith Kim, co-founder of KAC, was awarded the KAC Lifetime Award for his lifetime of service and steadfast dedication to the Korean American community. Locally, Mrs. Chaiwon Kim, CEO of the Center for Pan Asian Community Service (CPACS), was recognized for creating and providing numerous programs and social services to all ethnic communities around Metro Atlanta. As a glimpse of what is to come, the audience was introduced to a new mentoring initiative being development by KAC Metro Atlanta to continue our service and focus on future generations. We also sincerely thank our generous donors who showed their support during the Gala Dinner.

See you next year in Dallas for the 2020 KAC National Convention!
