community, respect towards all, and ethical conduct. If I behave in a way that is inconsistent with
these values, I understand that NAPABA may take appropriate action either during or after the
Convention. NAPABA's mission is to promote justice, equity and opportunity for Asian Pacific
Americans and to foster professional development, legal scholarship, advocacy and community
involvement. As a Convention attendee, I am a proud ambassador of the NAPABA legal community
and will conduct myself in a manner that advances NAPABA's goals."
