The Friends of the Asian American Advisory Board (FAAAB) is a non-profit organization.  It was organized to support and further the mission of the Miami-Dade County Asian American Advisory Board.

The Miami-Dade County Asian American Advisory Board is a Miami-Dade County agency, that was created by the Board of County Commissioners on July 22, 1997 with the mission to serve the Asian American community of Miami-Dade County. 

The Board is composed of twenty six members that are appointed by the thirteen district commissioners of the county.  Each district county commissioner appoints two members to the Board.

As the Board is a county agency, it functions and operates within certain constraints and guidelines set forth by the county.  The Friends of AAAB was therefore created to serve as the financial arm of the Miami-Dade County Asian American Advisory Board in furthering its mission, goals and objectives.
