You cannot learn to lead from reading a book or sitting in class. To be a leader, you must learn by doing. NAAAP-Chicago has been transforming itself to serve the Asian Pacific Islander professional community at higher levels than ever before. Our leadership team today is strong and talented. Become a part of our team; make meaningful change in our community. We are looking for serious candidates who have passion and enthusiasm for positive and lasting change.
Reasons to join the NAAAP-Chicago Board
NAAAP is a worthy cause.
NAAAP’s mission is to help Asian American Professionals advance in their careers. Your board service will help guide the organization’s overall direction and impact to execute this mission.
NAAAP can expand your personal and professional networks.
You will be meeting other for profit and nonprofit leaders locally and nationally through NAAAP.
NAAAP needs board directors
that are a good match to the organization. You’ll be a member of the highest-level decision-making team and your level of responsibility will likely be more substantial than many (although by no means all) volunteer roles.
NAAAP builds your nonprofit experience.
You will learn more about the nuts and bolts of nonprofit governance as well as receive hands-on experience with strategic planning, financial oversight, and fundraising. Many for-profit boards consider nonprofit board service experience a plus.
NAAAP builds your leadership skills.
Individuals who serve on a board have the opportunity to develop and grow as leaders and cultivate new skill sets.
NAAAP is here to develop your leadership skills, abilities, knowledge, attitudes, and competencies through experiential learning.
