The MAUVSA Advance Conference seeks to bring together over 300 young adults from Vietnamese-American communities around the Mid-Atlantic region for the purpose of empowering these individuals with the right tools to become successful leaders in society.

This year’s conference theme is “The Turning Point.” Defined as “times at which a decisive change in a situation occurs, especially one with beneficial results,” turning points are moments that we remember the most and what we accredit our individualities to. Throughout conference, we hope that attendees reflect on the turning point(s) in their lives and feel inspired to take the necessary steps to make an impactful change for themselves, their VSA’s, and their community.

This three-day conference is packed with engaging keynote speakers, popular entertainment, and invaluable networking opportunities. In addition, a series of insightful workshops will be offered for attendees to choose from, based on their areas of interest. Some of the workshops offered during past conferences include leadership styles exploration, entrepreneurship, project management, and even traditional lion dancing.
