About NAAAP 100 and Excellence Awards

For more than a century, Asians have overcome obstacles to make significant contributions in both America and Canada. Their contributions have added tremendously to the success and prosperity of North America.

NAAAP is a leadership development organization that provides a broad range of professional and educational services. It is only fitting then, that NAAAP recognizes leaders who exemplify our vision and mission. NAAAP is paying tribute to these leaders through the NAAAP 100 Recognition Program.

The NAAAP Awards recognize outstanding individuals and programming that exemplify the NAAAP mission, vision, and values and for the hard work and dedication in making NAAAP the premier leadership organization for Asian and Pacific Islanders in North America.

 


Thursday VIP Reception
Kick- off the convention with a classic and intimate VIP reception.
Delectable hors d'eurves and a selection of beverages to whet your appetite. Unwind after a long day of travel to Toronto, re-connect with old friends and make some new friends as well.  
 
Friday Night City Experience
Convention delegates will be whisked off-site to a mystery location nearby.
This is a unique way to experience the best that Toronto has to offer. This event will also be NAAAP Toronto's monthly event, and the only event that non-delegates will be able to attend. Toronto's power-networkers will be eager to meet you develop some new connections.   
 
Saturday NAAAP 100 and NAAAP Excellence Awards
