NAAAP Detroit Attended NAAAP National Leadership Academy in Boston
The National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) Detroit Chapter attended the 2017 NAAAP National Leadership Academy (NLA) on March 2nd through 5th at the Courtyard hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. This gave representatives from multiple NAAAP Chapters the opportunity to interact and grow into “becoming a champion.”
The mission of this conference was to develop the national organization by giving its chapters insight on growing its memberships, through sponsors and the collaboration of other chapters and organizations. This also allowed members from each chapter to get to know one another, developing future business relationships and personal friendships. Through this form of networking, the organization establishes its true identity.
As for the NAAAP Detroit Chapter, as well as many others, recreational activities played a big role in the weekend itself. This included the likes of the finest cuisine, such as a Chinese hot pot, Japanese barbeque, and fresh seafood. There was also a trolley which circled around the tourist attractions, such as the Boston Common, Fenway Park, and the set from the Cheers bar (TV show). NAAAP Detroit also traveled on Boston’s subways to visit Harvard University’s campus.

Governor Snyder Activates State Emergency Operations Center as Reports of Storm Damage Continue to Increase
Governor Rick Snyder
LANSING – Gov. Rick Snyder has activated the state’s Emergency Operations Center to closely monitor and share information as increasing reports of storm damage and power outages across the state are becoming available from local communities and utilities.
The Michigan Public Service Commission and Michigan Agency on Energy urge utility customers to exercise caution when using supplemental home heating sources or portable generators. It also is extremely important to treat all downed power lines as “live,” and assume they still have electricity flowing through them. That means residents should stay clear and call 9-1-1 to report the downed line.
