The Asian Employees' Association (AEA) at the Port of Oakland is a non-profit organization founded by Port employees in 1991 to inspire and reward outstanding academic achievement among our Oakland high school students.  AEA offers scholarships to high school seniors residing in Oakland to encourage them to attend college after graduation. The program has grown steadily over the years and has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships.

Records are falling at the Port of Oakland. Business volume is surging. As we enter 2017 you might say we're on a roll. That's the message we're sending in this year-end report to stakeholders. Consider the evidence:
  • We reported record revenue of $338 million in Fiscal Year 2016.
  • Seaport loaded container volume reached a record 1.8 million TEUs for the calendar year.
  • A record 3 million visitors came to Jack London Square during the year.
  • Oakland International Airport has reached a record high of 62 nonstop destinations.

And we expect continued growth in the coming year. But here's what pleases me most: the impact of this momentum is being felt beyond the Port's boundaries. Neighboring communities are benefiting from the Port of Oakland's success. For example, in 2016, the Port:
  • adopted a new Project Labor Agreement ensuring local residents get a sizable number of the jobs we create;
  • conducted seminars for small, local businesses to help them bid on Port contracts;
  • made direct contact with more than 10,000 neighbors, customers and business partners to make sure we're addressing their needs.
