ICMA conducted this survey at the request of several members who were interested in exploring the need and interest in building a professional network of Asian Pacific American (APA) local government professionals. Ed Shikada, Reyna Farrales, and Rey Arellano, among others, worked with ICMA to develop the approach and survey questions. The survey went to ICMA members who are Asian Pacific and to members who serve a community with a significant APA population. Survey recipients were also encouraged to share the survey with colleagues.
