Under Aung’s leadership and determination, NetMAA has been able to provide from 5 to 7 community outreach programs annually, including several Myanmar arts and cultural events, Myanmar film festival, benefit music concerts and U.S. Immigration service assistance. He has led efforts to reach out to the community and build partnerships with other community organizations to raise social awareness for the underserved community including Myanmar/Burmese in the United States. In 2009, Aung Naing was awarded the Southeast Asia Heritage Leadership by the Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach, California.

“I’ve been blessed my entire life with family, friends, colleagues, and community members who have supported me to no end,” he said. “This leadership award belongs to the community. Without their support, I wouldn’t be here today”

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (formerly Asian Pacific American Heritage Month) is celebrated nationally in May to recognize the history and diverse cultures and honor the contributions of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
