Detroit Chapter President’s Welcome

We are pleased to announce that the National Association of Asia American Professionals, NAAAP, has opened its Detroit Chapter!  We are motivated, organized, and moving forward with an exciting and aggressive schedule of events: Our informal kickoff event in July – Greater Detroit AsiaFest held in collaboration with the Council of Asian Pacific Americans, attracted more than 1,000 people.  We have held our first NAAAP Detroit Open House on Wednesday August 10th, in the iconic Rotating Rotunda room at the Edward Hotel & Convention Center.  The event drew an at-capacity diverse crowd who represented a cross section of the community or organization joined.

NAAAP is a non-profit professional organization and we rely on the generous support of individual donors, business, and corporations that believe in our mission: sponsors like you.  Sponsorship packages are an excellent opportunity to improve recognition and develop positive relationships while making impactful contributions to the community.

We are currently inviting potential sponsors to join us in cultivating and empowering the greater Asian American community through professional development, community service, and networking.  Please join us for our Inaugural Gala as we bring you an evening of “Inspiration: Imagine, Believe and Achieve”, which will be held this year on October 28 at Edward Hotel & Convention Center.  Please contact Sharon Dow at to purchase tickets and sponsorship packages.

We look forward to seeing you on October 28th!
