Three members of the Board are transitioning to serve NAPA in different capacities. These volunteers collectively contribute over two decades of volunteer experience on the NAPA Board to advancing the fraternal movement.
Teri Chung is appointed to the role of Vice Chair and is charged with setting the strategic direction of the NAPA Executive Board. Chung previously served as NAPA Secretary since 2016 where she worked with volunteers to update policies and procedures of the association.
“I am incredibly honored to return to the NAPA Board to continue to refine the gold standard for our member organizations,” says Chung. “I aim to develop a strong foundation of resources based upon NAPA’s needs from strategic planning while still reflecting and preserving the association’s purpose and history.”
Bryan Dosono is appointed to the role of Director of Research and Development and will publish annual trends in membership data to shape the discourse on advising collegiate APIDA students. Dosono previously served as Director of Membership since 2017 where he created the Standards of Excellence Recognition Program, and Director of Technology in 2016.
“We’ve been on a productive publishing spree over the past year in providing resource guides for university advisors, written perspectives for practitioners, and open data sets for HQ partners to make informed decisions,” says Dosono. “We’re eager to take on more opportunities to share the untold stories of our community, and I’m thrilled to elevate the significance and rigor of research for our association.”
Hannah Seoh transitions into the role of Past Chair and will shape long-term projects that advance the goals of the association. Seoh previously has served as Chair since 2016, Director of Interfraternal Relations in 2015, and Secretary in 2010.
“I feel honored and blessed to be able to continue in service to NAPA, especially in such uncertain times,” says Seoh. “I have no doubt that this Board will continue to push NAPA to new heights and I’m excited to be able to witness that first hand.”
NAPA organizations set the gold standard for Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) fraternities and sororities. In addition to meeting the association’s base standards, NAPA member organizations are exposed to resources and expertise to help them continually improve and be the best they can be. Universities, Greek Councils, and students want the best APIDA fraternities and sororities on campus and they can find them in NAPA.
