NAAAP Miami Chapter Year in Review
NAAAP Miami had a wonderful year with many accomplishments under our belt. Here are five which exemplifies this year’s NAAAP Leadership theme: unconventional.
2019 National Leadership Academy (#NLA19)
NAAAP Miami had the opportunity to work with two chapters, NAAAP Orlando and NAAAP Tampa. This marked the first time three chapters partnered to work on a NLA convention.
2019 Leadership on the Horizon (#LOTH19)
For the second year, NAAAP Miami put together an event where we gathered an All-Asians Americans panel discussion focusing on Public Service, Women Entrepreneurs, Start-up and Digital Rockstars. This occasion brought opportunities for our guests to network with many prominent Asian American in our community. Furthermore, it allowed NAAAP Miami the opportunity to work together with Asian Pacific American Bar Association (APABA) to provide guidance to startups.
Women in NAAAP (#WIN19)
This year, NAAAP Miami launched the WIN Program to promote wellness aiming on self-care, mindfulness practice, clean eating and positive energy by yoga and meditation. An opportunity to collaboration with a local company, Fullei Fresh and NAAAP North Carolina for this event.
SoFloDragons Dragon Boat (#SoFloDragons)
We kicked off our community Dragon Boat team called SoFloDragons in 2018. This program has attracted many NAAAP Miami members with our “SSS” motto, building team Strengths, Synergy, and Solidarity. What makes our 2nd year so amazing is the opportunity to paddle with some NAAAP Atlanta members on our first international dragon boat race in Orlando, Fl.
Community Service (#NAAAPGiving19)
NAAAP Miami participated in several community service projects throughout the year. Just to point out some of them:
- In 2019, our SoFloDragons team provided a demonstration of an actual Dragon Boat race during the Asia Cultural Festival.
- NAAAP Miami helped the Chinese Cultural Association (CCA) with children’s craft booth at their Children Christmas Party.
- Chapman Partnership Volunteer: NAAAP Miami collaborated with Chapman Partnership to help feed about 500 homeless men, women, and children in South Florida.
