About Us

We are the Dallas-Ft Worth chapter of the National Association of Asian American Professionals, a network for Asian American leaders. The NAAAP Vision: “We make leaders!” proclaims our mission to build leaders who are inspired and engaged. We believe that leaders are made, not born. We believe that sharpening the right skills and using the right platform to practice those skills will allow us to achieve any goals and dreams. And we believe in empowering others to achieve their goals and dreams to strengthen our community. Last but not least, we believe that both men and women can be built into leaders.

We fight for our mission by providing, one, professional development programs that foster continuous individual growth in the diversity of thought and skill sets. Two, networking events that enable leaders to establish meaningful connections with each other. And three, philanthropic service events that strengthen our community at large.
