(1) MANAA August Meeting – CANCELED!

Please note that we are canceling the MANAA general meeting normally scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 20th. We’re taking some extra time this month to do some serious planning for several exciting projects that we have coming up. Again: There is no general meeting in August. We’ll see you in September, if not sooner (see below).

(2) Win Tickets to Kollaboration Acoustic 3 on Saturday, August 22

There’s no general meeting this month, but you can still support the Asian American talent at Kollaboration’s Acoustic 3. MANAA is proud to be a community supporter of this great event at the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. In fact, we have 2 free tickets to give away! If you’re interested in winning two free tickets to see the show, please email us at letters@manaa.org with the subject “Kollaboration 3 tickets please!” We’ll pick a winner by August 14th.

(3) APEX “Exploring the Future of Asian American Media” – Aug. 27

And if you really miss us this month (ha ha), you can also look for us at this Los Angeles Networking event. MANAA’s not an official sponsor, but the evening, which includes Phil Yu of Angry Asian Man and other panelists discussing Asian Americans and the “new media,” should be a fun time. Email us if you’re going and maybe we can meet up!

(4) “The Last Airbender” – updates

Last but not least, we want to recognize the fans and supporters who are keeping the campaign going on The Last Airbender movie. Check out their awareness-raising efforts at the recent San Diego Comic-Con. Bravo!
