NAAHP History

In December 2008, a group of former classmates and friends from Essex County College in New Jersey assembled to discuss the need for a diverse and transformative professional organization that would help its members find synergy between career advancement in their chosen field, philanthropy and social entrepreneurship as a means to engage in Haiti’s ongoing rebuilding and development efforts. In April 2011, the organization was formally established as the National Association of Haitian Professionals (NAHP). The organization announced its name change to the National Alliance for the Advancement of Haitian Professionals (NAAHP) at the 4th Annual Conference in November 2015.
