About Us

Background

In 1988, the FAA Asian Pacific American Committee (APAC) was formally recognized. The group’s purpose was to share the Asian and Pacific American experience and culture with fellow FAA employees. In April 1991, APAC was renamed Coalition of FAA Asian Pacific Americans (CFAPA). Then in November 1994, it was renamed the National Asian & Pacific American Association (NAPA). By the following November, NAPA grew to include six regional chapters.

Our Mission

The National Asian and Pacific American Association (NAPA) proudly encourages the continued professional excellence of our members; promotes equal opportunity and affirmative action at FAA; and facilitates mentoring and networking opportunities to support the development of all FAA employees.
