Mission

 

The Asian American Council (formerly known as Asian American Advisory Council) was originally conceptualized and created as a necessary bridge between the New York City Police Department and the diverse Asian American communities to create a platform from which the Asian American communities could voice their concerns over issues involving police relations and to educate the community about police tactics, procedures and policies. The purpose was to improve tactical and operational strategies in reducing crime in Asian American communities and in improving communications and law enforcement efforts.

 

As with the changing times, the council has evolved and expanded its scope to improve the quality of life of the people, address critical public policy issues, promotion of benevolent works and to promote friendship between local governments and international counterparts.

The Council has an active governing body responsible for setting the mission and strategic direction of the organization and oversight of finances, operations, and policies.

 

The governing body ensures that that the members or trustees have the necessary skills, experience and wisdom to carry out the mission and duties of their office. It also ensures that the organization conducts its transactions and dealings with integrity, honesty and honorably; that it is fair and inclusive, and has the capacity to carry out its programs effectively.   It likewise ensures that the resources of the organization are responsibly and prudently managed.
