The Japanese American Citizens League congratulated Nisha Ramachandran on her appointment as executive director of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC).
Ramachandran has been a longtime advocate and friend of the JACL during her time with our friends at NCAPA as well as her time as a consultant for our tech and telecom partners.
JACL Executive Director David Inoue congratulated the appointment. “JACL has had a long working relationship with Ms. Ramachandran since her time with NCAPA, and in her capacity working in the community directly with NCAPA members and representing AT&T,” he said. “CAPAC found one of the few people who could step into the role of Executive Director and not miss a step in the transition. We look forward to working with her and continuing to build and strengthen our relationship with CAPAC.”
