Local/National Affiliate Organizations
NAPABA is an umbrella Asian Pacific American bar
association comprised of local Asian Pacific American bar associations,
as well as individual members. From the beginning, NAPABA's affiliate
organizations have played a key role in publicizing and addressing Asian
Pacific American legal issues. Indeed, not until the number of
affiliate organizations was sufficiently large and their members
sufficiently numerous could NAPABA even be formed in the late 1980's.
Today, the affiliate organizations continue to be vital to NAPABA,
alerting the organization to local issues across the nation and
providing a reservoir of tested local leaders who can then contribute to
and lead NAPABA at the national level.
always encouraging and supporting the emergence of new affiliates. The
number of our affiliate organizations has grown every year since
NAPABA's inception. Our current affiliates (as of the last web site
update) are listed by regional states.
