Gala

NAAAP 100 Awards and Gala

Asians in North America continue to overcome obstacles and make significant individual and team contributions in industry, academics, public sector, and communities.  Their contributions have added tremendously to the success and prosperity of the United States, Canada, and especially the Asian communities therein.  NAAAP is a leadership development organization that provides a broad range of professional and educational services. It is only fitting then, that NAAAP recognizes leaders who exemplify our vision and mission. NAAAP is paying tribute to these leaders with NAAAP 100 Recognition.  Join us at the NAAAP Gala dinner and awards ceremony on Saturday, August 13, 2016 as we honor the latest additions to the NAAAP100.

The NAAAP100 awards are sponsored by General Motors.

You can enjoy single individual Gala tickets of the Gala as part of the All-Inclusive Convention experience. For Tickets, see our Registration Page.
