The Washington State Governor has appointed a Tibetan American and resident of Seattle, Tashi Namgyal Khamshitsang, to the State Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs.

The State Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs looks after the well-being of Asian Pacific Americans in the Washington State by ensuring their access to participation in the fields of government, business, education, and other areas. The Commission also serves as an Asian Advisory Council to the Governor. The Commission was instituted by the 43rd State legislation passed on February 26, 1974.

In her appointment letter, Governor Christine O Gregoire says, “We need people like you, who are willing to give of their time and abilities to our state”. He further adds that “As a member of my team I ask you to take personal responsibility and hold our boards and commissions and their management accountable for results”.

Tashi Namgyal is appointed for a three-year term, which began on July 1, 2010 and ends on June 30th 2013.

He is a former President of the Tibetan Association of Washington State. Tashi Namgyal, before migrating to the United States in 1999, served the Tibetan Administration-in-Exile for 26 years in various capacities including the Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Nepal. He also served as the General Secretary of the Tibetan Youth Congress, the largest non governmental organization of the exile Tibetan community from 1983 to 1989.
