The National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) is a non-profit organization that cultivates and empowers Asian & Pacific Islander leaders through professional development, community service, and networking.
As the largest and fastest growing API professionals association, NAAAP continues to provide its members with the tools and resources to further career advancements and to empower Asians and Pacific Islanders to become great leaders as well as reliable employees.
In order to achieve our goals, NAAAP offers a diverse range of professional development programs on the local and national level, engages its membership in community service and organizes professional networking events. These may range from a series of panels, workshops and seminars, and web-based sessions and networking.
NAAAP Milwaukee was founded in 2013 by MAPS (Milwaukee Asian Professionals Society) leadership who realized that aligning with a National organization will provide Milwaukee-area Asian leaders greater avenues for cultivating professional excellence. NAAAP Milwaukee aims to connect accomplished professionals for mutual success, engage members in community service, and work with employers in business, nonprofit, and government to recruit, retain, and promote high-achieving individuals.
NAAAP Milwaukee enjoys support from various organizations in the Milwaukee area such as GE, Thomson Reuters, Johnson Controls, MillerCoors, and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, among others.
