When I first heard about NetKAL I had to look up their website.  I never knew this thriving organization that promoted Korean American leaders in our community.  The NetKal Program is organized by The Center for Asian-Pacific Leadership at the University of Southern California. The Center for Asian-Pacific Leadership promotes innovative education and training for Asian and Asian-American leadership.  They have fellowships that include some of the top Korean American leaders around the country.  Then once a year, they hold a GALA and Summit.  This year’s event was held at the California Science Center near USC.  Director of NetKAL, Dr. Je Hoon Lee was on hand greeting people and taking photos with friends and supporters.  With a huge list of celebrities and VIP’s, this event had some 500 people attending.  Some such guests included Saxophonist Kenny G, Yogurtland CEO Phillip Chang, Journalist Lisa Ling, Singer and K-Pop Star Kim Tae Woo, Singer and K-pop Star Gina Choi G.NA, Dexter Actor C.S.
