About The Convention
Association of Nepalese in Midwest America (ANMA), Nepalese Association in Southeast America (NASeA) and Association of Nepalis in the Americas (ANA) are pleased to inform that we have decided to come together, and hold the first National convention on the 2018 Labor Day weekend in Chicago, IL. We believe that working together we can serve our community more effectively and efficiently. Our combined effort in identifying the contemporary issues faced by community members and our joint effort in addressing these is the need of our time. Increasing the participation of new generation, providing them with a national platform for discussing the opportunities and issues that they encounter in their everyday life are of paramount importance to us. We need a new vision, a new mission and new programs to cater to the needs of growing communities.
We should focus on helping our community member to succeed professionally, academically and financially. We can be more effective if we forge a working alliance among us. This gives us more bargaining power and strategic strength.
We would like to invite all community members and Nepali social organizations in North America to join hands in a united platform to more effectively serve our community

Message from Embassy of Nepal, Dr. Arjun Kumar Karki
It is my distinct honor, in my capacity as the Ambassador of Nepal to the USA, on behalf of the Government of Nepal, to extend my warmest congratulations to the Association of Nepalese in Mid-West America (ANMA), Nepalese Association in Southeast America (NASeA) and Association of Nepalese in the Americas (ANA) for a successful Nepali National Convention 2018 on Aug 31-Sept 2, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Nepalese are a growing community in the United States of America. The Nepalese people are attracted to this great country because of the opportunities to make the best use of their talents and skills. I believe that as our community grows, it is essential to create platforms for our community members to network and exchange ideas and expertise that benefit each other as well as promote Nepal. In that regard, I am extremely pleased to hear about ANMA, NASeA and ANA’s initiative to bring together the Nepalese living in America as well as in Canada to meet and greet and engage among themselves to strengthen the unity among Nepalese organizations and empower each other. I am optimistic that this convention will further strengthen the bonds of ties between the Nepali diaspora.
I wish to extend my sincere greetings and hope this convention will facilitate towards achieving the mission, vision, and goals of ANMA, NASeA and ANA. I wish the convention a grand success.
Nepal Ambassador to the United States of America
