Description: 2012 NAAP-DC Annual Picnic is here!

Come join us for the last picnic of the summer and quite possibly the best picnic of the year! We are fortunate enough to have DMV’s greatest cook on board preparing food for this event so you will not want to miss this!

NAAP-DC promises you will have a truly memorable day at one of the most beautiful parks in our area. A large shelter and open space has been reserved allowing us to network, relax, and keep us covered in the event of rain.

Families welcome! Accotink Park has a number of options to include canoe, carousel, miniature golf, and a hiking trail just to name a few so leave your business attire at home and dress up for a great day at the park!
