What we're about

This is the official meetup group for NetSAP-DC, a well-established chapter of a national organization focused on serving as the unequivocal voice for the South Asian Diaspora by developing and engaging a cohesive network of professionals to benefit the community. We aim to be more than just a networking forum; to be the facilitating vehicle used by South Asian professionals to improve and enhance the communities in which we work and live. NetSAP DC lays the foundation for the best and brightest to forge cohesive relationships to work together for a lifetime. We will continue to interact closely with many of the acquaintances we make through our experiences within the NetSAP DC organization. To that end, NetSAP DC’s focus continues into the areas of economic growth and security, cultural awareness and preservation, family needs, and promoting education and learning. NetSAP hosts monthly networking, community service, book club and other events that interest our members.

March Kitaab Korner

Busboys and Poets

Join us for our monthly book chat! The book that won the popular votes for this month is: “The most important places on a map are the places we haven't been yet” ― Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar, The Map of Salt and Stars. This rich, moving, and lyrical debut novel is to Syria what The Kite Runner was to Afghanistan; the story of two girls living eight hundred years apart—a modern-day Syrian refugee seeking safety and a medieval adventurer apprenticed to a legendary mapmaker—places today’s headlines in the sweep of history, where the pain of exile and the triumph of courage echo again and again.

April Hike

Rock Creek Park

Let’s kickoff Spring with our first hike of the year! With Civil War fortifications, working mills, colonial houses, and hundreds of years of history, Rock Creek Park is a rare 1754-acre natural oasis that bisects the national capital. Stay tuned for details soon! RSVP to let us know if you can join us: [masked]

Earth Day - Community Service

Potomac River

Join NetSAP DC as we celebrate Earth Day teaming up with the Potomac River Watershed Cleanup efforts. The Annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup has become a decisive catalyst for progress that ignites people’s interest and passion for the environment and community action. The largest regional event of its kind, the Cleanup provides a transforming experience that engages residents and community leaders and generates momentum for change. The Potomac River Watershed Cleanup has grown from a small shoreline cleanup at Piscataway National Park to a watershed-wide network. What started as a few cleanup events along the Potomac River is now a regional event spanning Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. RSVP soon via e-mail to grab your spot : [masked]
