More than 200 elected officials, community and business leaders, entrepreneurs and students recently gathered in Washington, D.C. to attend a conference and student scholarship gala hosted by the International Leadership Foundation (ILF).
Fremont mayor Lily Mei was among elected officials at the event which was co-hosted by the Coalition of Asian American Business Organizations (CAABO). The ILF is a non-profit organization that promotes the civic engagement, leadership empowerment, and economic prosperity of the Asian Pacific American community (APA).
During the July 20 event, Mei was among 10 members honored for their professional achievements and dedication to the improvement of the APA.
Among notable speakers at the event were U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao; Norman Mineta, former U.S. Secretary of Transportation; and U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Comstock.
Mei has lived in Fremont since 1994 and was elected mayor in 2016.
