a message from the ChairWOman

Welcome! On behalf of the Board of Directors and as the Chairperson and founding member of the Haitian American Professionals Coalition, I wish to thank you for visiting our wonderful Website!  The Coalition’s core values are demonstrated in our vision and activities since our inception in 2001. HAPC has a strong commitment to its stakeholders to operate under the guiding principle of what is best for the coalition and the community.

It is with pride and passion that I will lead HAPC during my term and wish to thank everyone for their vote of confidence in choosing me as their leader. Together we will continue to build a strong and cohesive coalition that will celebrate our successes and address the many challenges facing our community today.

Our strength is built on the on-going belief that each Core association, organization and members-at-large of HAPC brings their ideas, resources, skills, and commitment to the table so that we can accomplish our ambitious goals and objectives for the future.

I look forward with optimism and confidence that HAPC will prosper and grow, and invite you to join or participate in our various committees and activities, and be a part of a great coalition!
