COVID-19 caused all of us to re-examine and revise how we live and interact with each other. It has also impacted on how we conduct our business, and organize annual meetings and conferences. The Non-Resident Nepali Association National Coordination Council of USA (NRNA NCC of USA) is organizing its 9th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and National Knowledge Convention online on July 3-5, 2020.  The theme of the convention is going to be “Collaborate for better tomorrow”. Organizing such events in the midst of pandemic demonstrates resiliency of those involved in making it happen. It’s another milestone for smart NRNA.

Organizing national and international conventions and conferences is one of the main objectives of the NRNA NCC USA. For the first time NRN NCC USA is organizing a historic Knowledge Convention in an online format. The convention will bring experts and professionals of Nepali and foreign origin to share the knowledge in the benefit of Nepali living in diaspora and in Nepal.  There are two themes of the convention

  1. Theme 1 - Professional presentations 
  2. Theme 2 - Town Halls 

The three day long convention will evolve around these themes and conclude with a declaration of white paper.
