NAAAP New York is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), all-volunteer, Pan-Asian American professional organization that promotes the career advancement and leadership development of Asian-American professionals in all fields through professional development, community service, and social events. We are the founding, flagship chapter of the National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) with a history dating back to 1982.
Once a month, NAAAP-NY hosts a night of cocktails & conversation with different industries, community partners and corporate affinity groups networking with NAAAP NY members.
In April, Talk Tuesday returned as NAAAP-NY got the conversation going with members of Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) and Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF)! Industries and networks intermingled as attendees enjoyed a great night of cocktails and conversation, with special Talk Tuesday Talking Points facilitating discussion on APIA issues. Two of our lucky guests won pairs of Yankees tickets, sponsored by DTI! See more photos
