NAPABA Convention Credo
To highlight the values and goals of the organization, NAPABA has adopted a
Convention Credo that will be one of the guiding principles for attendees:
"I undertake the responsibility of promoting a professional environment at the
NAPABA Convention to encourage and maintain the important values of friendship, civility,
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."
