We Are National Association of Asian American Professionals - Kansas City

Thank You for a Fantastic 2022


As we all prepare to take a much-deserved and needed break, the NAAAP-KC board wanted to take a moment and give thanks and show appreciation to the NAAAP-KC community. After two+ years of doing our part in keeping each other safe, inspired, educated, and connected through virtual gatherings,  we were beyond excited to finally host in-person events once again. Our 2022 programming included a mix of successful traditional events, including members' favorite Happy Hour Socials, leadership speakers series, and community partner collaborations. Not one to rest on our laurels, we are always seeking opportunities for new and meaningful experiences for our members.

WIN! (Women in NAAAP-KC) Book Club Discussion - Peach Blossom Spring


"Within every misfortune, there is a blessing and within every blessing, the seeds of misfortune, and so it goes, until the end of time."

Our latest WIN! (Women in NAAAP-KC) Book Club selection is Peach Blossom Spring: A Novel by Melissa Fu. Spanning continents and generations, Peach Blossom Spring is a bold and moving look at the history of modern China, told through the story of one family. It’s about the power of our past, the hope for a better future, and the haunting question: What would it mean to finally be home?

All are welcome to join in on the discussion. 

This will be a virtual event. A ZOOM link will be provided for those that wish to attend.
