NAAHP Presents:

The Golden Honors Award Gala

Recognizing Extraordinary Dedication

“Elevating Haiti and Its Diaspora”


As the premier networking organization for professionals and students, the National Association of Haitian Professionals joins in celebrating the accomplishments of the changemakers who are making a difference in their industries and community at large. We invite you to take part in helping us to recognize the contributions of men and women  who continue to elevate Haiti and its Diaspora. The NAAHP Golden Honors Award Gala is a wonderful culmination to our annual conference as we present the Haitian Leadership Award Scholarship to deserving college students who demonstrates excellence and leadership.

The Golden Honors Award Gala is a red carpet event attended by dignitaries, influencers, and community leaders who will partake in an unforgettable evening of live entertainment, dinner, dancing but most importantly honoring the extraordinary efforts of servants in our community.
