16 members stronger at 2AM

The eastward bound winds of last Friday's signature NAAAP-Seattle monthly mixer brought along with it Eastern cuisine, this time at the Korean fusion restaurant 2AM in Bellevue.

And some northern bound trends in NAAAP's membership numbers: 16 new members signed up at the event.

Vanessa Diego, an agent at New York Life (in photo, far left), said she signed up to become a member because she "wanted to support NAAAP-Seattle events."

Although Diego has gone to NAAAP-Seattle professional development seminars, this was her first time at the organization's signature monthly mixer.

"I liked it a lot," Diego said. "I don't think I've been to such a good mixer, socializing with quality professionals."

Veteran NAAAP-Seattle social mixer attendee, Yen La, noted that there were "many new faces this time."

Busy bee NAAAP-Seattle president Gil Gido also made his first appearance of the year at a NAAAP-Seattle monthly mixer.

“It was great meeting NAAAP members and to hear what they’re up to," said Gido.

Come join us at our next monthly mixer on May 7, 6-8pm, Del Ray, 2332 1st Avenue, Seattle. The weatherman is calling for some north-west bound winds.
