Dear convention participants
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Nepali National Convention 2019 in the beautiful city of Baltimore, Maryland on 4th of July weekend, July 5, 6 & 7, 2019.
As given continuation of national conventional tradition, this year Association of Nepalis in Americas (ANA), Association of Nepalese in Midwest America (ANMA), International Nepalese Literary Society (INLS) and Baltimore Nepali Association (BANA) are keeping its promises by joining hands with the bigger community through Nepali National Convention and going beyond our regional existence. This time we are more successful in bringing together a greater number of Nepalese community organizations, friends and families living in North America and beyond.
As we all agree that Nepali community is expanding every day and the new generations of Nepalese are growing up fast, we are in a process of building a strong community that works with diverse culture, society and social norms – values. We need and must create a common platform for all Nepalis, we should have one single voice for a rightful advocacy. This is only possible when we all come under one umbrella and act with actions. Let’s be a part of this discussion, make decisions and complete this important mission.
I do appreciate the endless hard work done by my executive team, Convention chair, co-chairs/committee members and other ANMA volunteers for bringing this convention at this stage so far. With all their helps and supports, I am confident that we will be able to achieve our mission to make this convention an ally of making friends, place for professional interactions, socio-economic discussions, and venue for informative and entertaining programs including traditional Nepali music and opportunity to taste Nepali food. We are sure that our guests will have variety of options to choose for.
So, on behalf of ANMA family, I kindly request all of the Nepali Americans and friends to attend this Nepali National convention by registering it and securing your place in the convention and make this convention a grand success.
On behalf of ANMA, I would like to thank to BANA’s past and current executive team, local volunteers and others who took initiation and responsibility for the hosting Nepali National Convention in Baltimore.
Thank you and hope to see you all in the convention venue.
Sincerely, Balram Panthi President, Association of Nepalese in Midwest America (ANMA)
