Join us and network with Asian professionals, Asian-American professionals, and multi-cultural Asian professionals in the New York, NY Metro Area.  We are 6,539 Asian Professionals and growing!

Please note that our group and our events are not for non-Asians.

Our happy hour has been on the last Monday of every month for a decade.  Won't you join us to see why hundreds of Asian professionals come out every time?  Our next happy hour is on October 26.  Hope to see you soon!


The mission of the New York Asian Professionals Meetup ( is to connect Asians and Asian-Americans in the New York metropolitan area: life is richer and business is better when you have more quality relationships! Come meet other Asians in a fun environment.

Founded by Richard Young in 2005, the NYAPM is the largest of its kind -- in the WORLD. Once you join our group by clicking the red "Join us" button, you're instantly connected to over 6,500 Asian professionals living and working in and around New York City. Organizers and attorneys Richard Young and Tiffany Ma have been successfully connecting Asians and Asian-Americans socially and professionally in the tri-state area for the last decade.

When you go to our events, you can mix & mingle with the 300+ Asian professionals that typically attend. Many of our members have become good friends and now get together for fun, business, or romance outside the monthly happy hours -- and that's what this is all about: connecting with like-minded Asians in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

Our typical member is Asian and based in the NY metro area, and likely working in the finance, medical, legal, or technology sector. But Asians of all ages and professions (and students 21+) are welcome!

Our typical event is at an upscale lounge or event space and usually 300+ Asian professionals show up, with an even amount of Asian men and Asian women.  Our members are friendly and chatty, but if you do need an introduction, either Richard or Tiffany would be happy to provide several for you.

If you're an Asian professional in the NY metro area, please join our group now!

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
