About this Event

About TAP (formerly known as YAP)

Young Asian Professionals (YAP) started about 5 years ago by a few bright-eyed ambitious youngsters, seeking to bring together like-minded professionals and foster long-lasting relationships. In the last 5 years, we have achieved this and so much more. Our members who joined many years ago as “Young Asian Professionals” have grown into successful, mature business people, entrepreneurs and leaders in their respective industries.

Some of our members may feel that YAP is only for young professionals, but we’re here to let you know that YAP has grown with you. Not only is YAP committed to fostering long-lasting relationships between its members, but also to long-lasting relationships with its members as well. We are here to support and connect young emerging professionals and established mature professionals alike.

To maintain the connection to our broad and growing membership base, the YAP Committee has decided, after much debate and deliberation, to change our name to “The Asian Professionals” (TAP) effective immediately. This is an exciting new chapter for all of us here on the Committee and we hope to continue creating fantastic networking opportunities for you well into the future.
