The Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area (AABA) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) 2017 Affiliate of the Year. The Affiliate of the Year Award recognizes outstanding affiliates for their best practices and accomplishments in their local communities. The award will be presented to AABA at the 29th Anniversary Gala during the 2017 NAPABA Convention in Washington, D.C. on November 4, 2017.
AABA’s selection as NAPABA’s Affiliate of the Year reflects the culmination of its 41-year legacy of standing up for justice. Since its inception in 1976, AABA has stood up for justice by coming together as a community and mobilizing its members to defend the civil rights of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs), serve the community, and advance to higher positions of influence in the legal profession. AABA’s ongoing work would not be possible without its founders, leaders, 15 committees, sponsors, and over 1,200 members.
“AABA is honored to be selected as NAPABA’s Affiliate of the Year,” said Miriam Kim, President of AABA. “We extend a heartfelt thank you to our members and community partners for their continued involvement and support in carrying on AABA’s legacy of civil rights, community service, and career advancement.”
