The Asian American Council
Michael S. Limb
Executive Chairman

 

The Asian American Council was formed and organized in 1984 in collaboration with the New York City Police Department under the guidance and leadership of Mr. Michael S. Limb, Executive Chairman.  Together with the Deputy Commissioner of Community Affairs of the NYPD, they created a necessary and welcome bridge between the Asian American Community and the Police Department of the City of New York.


The Council was formed to improve communication and cooperation between Asian Americans, the police and other law enforcement agencies. The council through conferences and workshops, provided incentives for the Asian American community to understand and appreciate the knowledge, skills, and discipline needed to become combat different types of crimes.

From its inception and continuing up to the present, the Asian American Council's mission was, and still is, to improve the quality of life for Asian Americans living in New York and its surrounding metropolitan areas by conducting seminars on immigration, consumer affairs, fire safety, health, housing, schools, transportation, and economic development issues.  The council broadened its scope to work with members of the NYC Police Department, the NY Fire Department, NYC Department of Health , Queens District Attorney's office, the Mayor's Community Assistance Unit, New York State Government and its agencies, US Department of State, US Department of Homeland Security through its Citizenship and Immigration Service, Customs Enforcement and Federal Bureau of Investigation New York Offices.

The Asian American Council also acted as liaison and collaborated with the New York Police Department for the training of police officers from several Asian countries.  The training includes, among things bomb disposal and counter terrorism. The Council has also recruited its members to attend the FBI, police and fire department citizen academy programs. These self contained special education programs improved Asian Americans' understanding and awareness of the role they can play in helping to keep the city safe for everyone.  As the world today becomes more complex and dangerous, and the terrorist threats to disrupt the very fabric of society by creating chaos and fear cannot be discounted, the Asian American Council would like to expand the number of people participating in these programs to provide large numbers of trained and disciplined citizens to respond to emergencies when needed by the authorities.  The Asian American Council and its members are uncompromising in their support of democracy and the people who protect us.

Last  August,  2006 the Asian American Council hosted an immigration seminar for the general public.  The dignitaries from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement elucidated on the laws and policies of the government.  The seminar proved to be a catalyst of understanding between the government and the general public, more particularly the immigrants to this great county of ours.

The Asian American Council also assists worthwhile projects of non-profit organization not only here in the United Stated but also in other parts of the world.  The Asian American Council is in full support, and acts as liaison, of Stop AIDS Organization headquartered in Japan, and composed of the diplomatic corps of the different African  nations to that county.  The said organization will be sponsoring Africa AIDS Orphan Soccer Project  at the United Nations on October 25, 2006 to assist and give medical and other necessary assistance to children suffering from AIDS. or have been orphaned by the disease.

The Council has assisted many Asian Americans assimilate themselves into American mainstream society by making valuable contributions to the economic, social, cultural and political fields.  Our 22nd anniversary tribute celebrates this.
