Asian Pacific American Bar honors Takei, others at regional conference
Indiana’s chapter of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association is hosting the national bar association’s regional conference later this month, bringing a famed member of the “Star Trek” cast to the Hoosier state.
APABA-IN will host the Central Regional Conference for attorneys in the NAPABA Central Region Aug. 23-24 at The Alexander hotel, with George Takei attending as a speaker and honoree.
The conference will include a welcome reception, CLE presentations and a gala dinner on the evening on Aug. 24. Takei, who portrayed Hikaru Sulu in the original “Star Trek” series in several films, went on to become a social activist and author. He also will host a book-signing event for his new book, “They Called Us Enemy,” which will be available for purchase.
