Professional Development Series
A series of workshops and talks to develop our membership base into leaders and contributing members of our community. These events can be anything from workplace dressing workshops to inspiring stories shared by APIA leaders and New York success stories. These innovative sessions will be led by a NAAAP leadership and open to the audience, encouraging dialogue with the speakers.
A professional development series geared towards fostering rising leaders in the APIA community, NAAAP-NY’s Rising Leaders Workshop is a quarterly interactive learning and networking session built around improving a specific key area in career advancement. Attendees can learn proven strategies and techniques from seasoned professionals to effectively navigate their own paths to career success.
NAAAP-NY recognizes the importance of developing public speaking and communication skills as a critical step on the road to leadership and professional development. As an added benefit to becoming a NAAAP member, NAAAP is launching a chapter of Toastmasters International called the ToastNAAAPsters. Members will be able to partake in monthly Toastmaster International meetings, and gain valuable support and a positive learning environment which will empower them to practice and improve key communication skills amongst peers.
