The National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all volunteer run organization that cultivates and empowers Asian North American leaders through professional development, community service, and networking. NAAAP members work together to make a difference in their careers and in their communities.
There are currently more than 25 chapters and ventures across major cities in North America. NAAAP, with a growing membership of more than 3,000, includes a diverse group of leaders and working professionals with a wide variety of educational and industry backgrounds: corporate, small business, non-profit, academic, entertainment, and government.
NAAAP hosts both an annual leadership retreat for its key leaders from across the U.S. and Canada, and a National Convention for all leaders and their members. Convention locations vary by year and have encompassed a wide range of subjects that Asian American leaders grapple with today.
Past speakers include the honorable Elaine Chao, U.S. Secretary of Labor, Guy Kawasaki (tech evangelist with Apple), Indira Nooyi (CEO of Pepsi), the honorable Michael Honda, U.S. Congressman, and George Takei (actor).
Former NAAAP members include the honorable Gary Locke, US Secretary of Commerce (former NAAAP Seattle).
NAAAP inspires Asian Americans from all backgrounds and professions to work together on personal advancement and to make significant contributions to the community.
We are able to make great strides in reaching our international mission because of our local presence. As the need increases in communities around the world, so does the demand for NAAAP support.
Your support is critical in helping to build the foundation of newly emerging NAAAP chapters and is the ultimate opportunity to demonstrate your company’s diversity support for the Asian Pacific American community.
