NaFFAA executive director to step down, search is on for successor
WASHINGTON, DC – Jason Tengco, the current executive director of National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA will step down from his role at the end of April.

Jason has been a transformational leader whose unmatched experience and unshakeable work ethic have helped NaFFAA reach new heights in our efforts advocating for the more than four million Filipinos in the U.S.,” said NaFFAA National Chairman Brendan Flores.
“What he’s helped accomplish in two short years—forging meaningful civic partnerships, fortifying our infrastructure, growing and empowering our grassroots network of Filipino American leaders—has strengthened NaFFAA’s foundation for years to come, and we are eternally grateful for his service.”
NaFFAA is now accepting applications for leaders interested in the Executive Director role, stated Director of Human Capital Ryan Namata. “We are looking for a leader who can build upon NaFFAA’s rich two decade history of Filipino American advocacy, and lead us into 2020 and beyond with an ambitious and innovative vision that will help NaFFAA reach new heights.”
