ASAP Gala 2013 will provide a night to remember with networking, entertainment and a powerful speaker.  ASAP was formed in 2007 by a group of concerned South Asian Professionals from various disciplines.  The vision of ASAP is to exhibit social responsibility through positive action in the general community, foster leadership by acting as role models and mentors, and provide a forum for South Asians to network, all in a professional manner.

“This will be a great opportunity for South Asian professionals to meet and network in a social setting.  Attendees will hear from our members about how we are making a difference in the mainstream and South Asian communities by engaging in socially responsible activities and acting as mentors and role models for youth.  Come and meet your fellow South Asian professionals and learn how you too can make a difference by giving back to the community.   Your involvement is only limited by your imagination.”  states Jindy Bhalla, President of ASAP
