Invitation to the interested organizations at the General Assembly of Federation Council (ANA 30th Convention)

Steadily increasing arrival of Nepalese in the Americas over the last decade has given rise to many community oriented organizations. Most share similar objectives and face similar constraints. In 2009, ANA Executive Board started bringing together presidents and/or representatives of 18 community organizations from the major cities/ regions of North America as Executive Board members. The idea was to bring in these organizations towards a common platform.

To structurally address shared objectives and constraints, Annual General Meeting held in 2010 approved the proposal to transform ANA into a federation. Change is often met with resistance, by a few, or most in some instances. In this case, the resisting group of a few exploited the financial fallout of 2010 Boston convention, an affair that was independently managed from the ANA Executive Board, and enhanced platform achieved by inclusion of all major organizations. They failed, but only after they tarnished the image of ANA in the eyes of many. Annual General Meeting held in 2011 upheld the transformation, along with interim board. Ensuing legal challenge by those few failed in the court as well.

Now at the historic mega ANA convention in Dallas will seek to address what, how, when, and other questions.

It will happen at the General Assembly of the organizations’ Federation Council.

All the major community organizations are slated to be speaking at this important forum affecting Nepalese in Americas. Please mark your calendar.
