In January 1972, Governor Evans created The Governor's Asian Advisory Council by executive
order. On February 26, 1974, the 43rd Washington State Legislature formally created The State
of Washington Commission on Asian American Affairs as a state agency. On April 17, 1995,
Governor Mike Lowry signed a bill to change the Commission's name to The State of Washington
Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs to include Pacific Islanders.
The Commissionís 28 year history marks a legacy of advocacy, community education and
outreach, as well as interagency and community collaborations to improve the well-being of the
Asian Pacific American communities.
The Commission has an Advisory Board made up of 12 Governor-appointed Commissioners
representing the state's rich Asian Pacific American diversity. The Commissioners advise the
Governor and state and local public officials about issues that concern the Asian Pacific American
community. Each Commissioner serves a three-year term and may serve for two consecutive
terms. The Commissionís headquarters is in Olympia and has no other offices. The Commission
has one paid Executive Director and one paid Executive Assistant.
The Commissionís operating budget in the 2005-07 budget period was approximately $520,000.
The Commission also receives gifts, grants and endowments from public or private sources for
the use or benefit of the Commission and to expend, without appropriation, the same or any
income from the gifts, grants or endowments according to their terms.
