Park’s vision for KAPN for the next couple of years is for the organization to continue to connect and bring Korean-American professionals together, and work to become the premier DFW organization for professional networking and leadership development.


During his tenure, Park plans to continue many of the great initiatives KAPN currently offers, such as the student/intern mentoring programs, professional speaker series events, youth seminars, and networking opportunities, as well as look to provide more opportunities for the members to leverage each other to develop and create mutually beneficial professional relationships.
