Being a NAAAP Board Member: 2010 Social Chair, Jenny Xu

Being a NAAAP Board member is a great opportunity for building skills that will make you successful.  We took some time to sit down with Jenny Xu, NAAAP Seattle's Social Chair who served on the Board of Directors through last June.  

1) What did you like most about being NAAAP-Seattle Social Chair?
I built a great network of friends through NAAAP-Seattle and becoming Social Chair really helped me give back to a community that has given so much to me. I loved setting up different venues where people can get to know each other, have fun, and support a great organization.

2) How did this experience help you with your career development?
The Social Chair position allowed me to hone my leadership skills outside of work, such as managing the social committee, leading the individual events, participating in strategic decisions for the organziation, and working with a great team of successful and diverse board members. Demonstrating leadership inside and outside of work was a key factor that helped me get into business school.

On that note, our August social event was held at the Bellevue Grille in Bellevue, Wa last Friday.  Members and non-members alike came together after a long week of working and shared in the fun of meeting new people.

It was standing room only at the Bellevue Grill at the NAAAP August mixer.
