Regional Network

Regional Network

The Regional Network (RN) is represented by all federal government agencies in the 10 federal regions. The RN is your way to access federal resources. We are local regional, national, and beyond. The RN seeks to build relationships between the federal government and the AAPI community by coordinating outreach and engagement efforts across regional offices.

The Regional Network comprises over 300 members in the 10 federal regions, representing more than 30 federal agencies. The RN seeks to build relationships between the federal government and the AAPI community by coordinating outreach and engagement efforts across regional offices.

If you would like to engage with your local RN leadership, do not hesitate to reach them through the Contact Us page or email whiaapi@doc.gov. They would be happy to answer any of your questions or direct you to the right federal agency. The RN leadership looks forward to coordinating local and regional events to continue help the AAPI community better understand and engage with the federal government.
