Our Mission & Vision

Around and about Chicago


 The first thing you will notice different about AACN when compared to other groups is that we are an active and fun group. We pride ourselves on the ability to create community and have a fun time together. We were founded in the summer of 2011 and average more than 2 events per week.  Below is a short summary of who we are.  

The Asian American Chicago Network is focused on connecting Asian Americans in the city of Chicago to a new and fun community and connecting you to the great city of Chicago and its resources!  

Are you new to Chicago? Have you lived here your entire life? Do you want to meet others in a fun / friendly environment? We have activities that range from outdoor/sports, volunteering, picnics, potlucks, brunch clubs, dinners, socials, and nightlife, to just name a few! Organizers will always help facilitate fun networking and mingling.

Our group targets those that are new professionals and working professionals.
