build communities



When I reached out to a member for salary negotiating advice, he was fully present for me, concise, and honest in his feedback and guidance, but also patient with my many questions. I entered that negotiation ready and confident. I was successful in an increased offer and my sign-on bonus!

 “We Build Leaders” is our mission statement. Some are drawn to the community aspect of “We.” Others seek to be more effective “Leaders.” “Build” speaks directly to me because I know things will get a little ugly, before it becomes more meaningful. NAAAP is the ideal place to grow thanks to the dedication of its members.


Washington DC

I have expanded my professional network exponentially and believe I would be welcomed for a visit in any city we have a chapter. As crazy as it sounds, I never really identified with being Asian American till now; I am so grateful to be volunteering with and for NAAAP.     


San Jose

One interaction with another NAAAP member turned into two interviews at a Fortune 500 company. This is the kind of magic that can happen with like-minded professionals in our group, who are all about lifting each other up and staying focused on your development.
