I am truly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a wonderful team of directors at NAAAP Toronto.
The total NAAAP experience has instilled valuable qualities such as: leadership, dedication, commitment to success and the pursuit of professional growth. I am especially grateful for the confidence that the team had in me towards leading the 2009 April Dress for Success Professional Fashion Showcase. Over the past few years, I have learned so much as well as having a great time.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a NAAAP Toronto director is definitely the chance to meet and network with a wide range of business professionals in Toronto and other city Chapters/Ventures. As a former Director of Events for NAAAP Toronto, I am proud of our association’s achievements. As a team, we continually push the envelope in providing our members and guests with innovative monthly events which some of them include business mixers, professional development seminars, community functions and film screenings that showcase award winning projects and film industry professionals from both Asia and North America.
Another important aspect about NAAAP Toronto is our community partnership with the Mon Sheong Foundation who we support through the success of Little Asia at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. After 4 years of a winning track record and successful fundraising, this highly anticipated annual event highlights teamwork, volunteerism, sportsmanship, youth development and most of all – a great time for the entire family.
I have truly enjoyed my experience at NAAAP Toronto and will most definitely continue to play an active part in contributing my time and support. The events and programs align well with my own sense of nurturing leadership and success for business professionals in Toronto. I enthusiastically recommend any university graduate and working professional to consider joining this innovative organization.
