Halunen Law attorney Ben Kwan was appointed to a one-year term as president of the Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Association (MNAPABA) on October 1. As president, Ben leads a board of nine directors overseeing the non-profit association of Asian and Asian American attorneys in Minnesota. MNAPABA counts approximately 200 attorneys, judges, and law students as members.
This will be Ben’s fourth year of service on the MNAPABA board. During his tenure he overhauled and launched MNAPABA’s website, implemented a sophisticated membership management platform, and used his skills as a former television journalist to promote and give voice to the organization and its members through numerous stories in the media.
As board president, Ben looks forward to overseeing programming and events that further MNAPABA’s mission: “promoting and supporting the personal and professional development of Asian American and Pacific American lawyers, judges, and law students, serving as an advocate for the Asian Pacific American community in Minnesota, and promoting equal access to justice.” At the MNAPABA Annual Gala, Ben called on MNAPABA members to devote the next year to service–to the profession, the Asian Pacific American community, and to one another.
Halunen Law congratulates Ben on this important appointment and the opportunity to share his tremendous leadership skills with MNAPABA in the year ahead.
