    When OCA Founder Kung-Lee Wang formed the OCA Business Advisory Council in 1980, it was an expansion of his vision that OCA’s mission could be furthered advanced by creating strong and lasting partnerships with America's corporate sector. 

    Each year, companies have an opportunity to nominate one of their own Asian Pacific American employees for their accomplishments and contributions. Over the years, the awards have come to also include recognition to one recipient for Community Service and to one company as the Corporate Partner of the Year.
