On October 20-21, 2017, CKA will convene our third annual National Summit & Gala
at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC.

The CKA National Summit & Gala began in 2015 as an opportunity for Korean Americans to gather in our nation’s capital to reflect on key issues and celebrate our contributions to the U.S. It is a crucial opportunity to hear from elected officials and connect with business and community leaders to plan and mobilize for action on matters that affect us all. In October, we will come together on behalf of all Korean Americans and assert our voice in action in our government, our society, and our communities.
