NAAAP 100: Recognizing Leaders

For more than a century, Asians have overcome obstacles to make significant contributions in both America and Canada. Their contributions have added tremendously to the success and prosperity of North America. 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 through the NAAAP 100 Recognition Program.

Nominations for the 2014 year are now open. Download the press release and nomination form here. Email completed nomination forms to naaap100@naaap.org by April 11, 2014. You will receive confirmation of your submission.
