Dear Ascend Members and Supporters,

We are now less than 6 (!!) weeks away from the 2019 Ascend National Convention & Career Fair taking place in Washington DC on August 24 - 26, 2019. This year's theme is 'Endless Possibilities' and we have an unforgettable three days planned with inspiring speakers and interactive programming, sessions ranging from innovation and marketing to team-building, leadership, and social impact. The Convention provides you with 1-on-1 opportunities to connect directly with leaders and peers in your industry and community.

While we know everyone will be busy during the convention, we want to make sure your voices are heard. Use #ascendDC2019, #ascend2019 or #ascendleadership when sharing your photos at the convention. We will like and retweet our favorite ones. Also, remember to download the Convene app. Once you are registered, details will be provided.

Lastly, today is the last day to register for both the Asian American Executive Program and the 2019 Ascend Executive Scholarship! Don't miss out on this opportunity to truly take your career to the next level and make lifelong connections that could transform your career.

We hope to see you all in our nation's capital in a few weeks!
