In 1999, Congressman Wu became the first Chinese-American to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a member of the House Education and Labor Committee, the former chairman and current Education Taskforce chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, as well as a member of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China.
Wu was an attorney at Miller Nash from 1984 to 1988, when he co-founded the law firm Cohen & Wu. Over the course of a decade, the Cohen & Wu firm served the high-technology industry and numerous small businesses across northwest Oregon.
Congressman Wu will address his experience in private practice as well as his transition into politics. The talk will be followed by a short question and answer session. A must see for OAPABA members thinking about a career in politics!
