Welcome Message from Dr. Ram C. Baral, Chairperson,
9thAnnual NASeA/ANMA Joint Convention
Dear fellow Nepalese and friends of Nepal,
On behalf of South Carolina Association of Nepalese (SCAN), I am very excited to welcome you all to the 9th NASeA/ANMA Joint Convention Aug 30-Sep 1, 2013 at the Marriot in the beautiful city of Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina. Preparations are already under way for what will be one of the largest 3-day gatherings of Nepalese in the US.
The venue is the first in the history of NASeA/ANMA. All of us in the convention committees are working very diligently to ensure that you experience a warm, southern hospitality during the convention. We hope you connect with friends and family you have not met with in a while, as well as also network with a new set of contacts. As the chair of the convention, I urge everyone to feel free to contact members of the convention committees to share your ideas, talents, and unleash your potentials in any part(s) of the convention, including volunteering, sponsoring or performing. This is one of the greatest opportunities to serve our Nepalese community.
A fully functional website for the convention is now live. Please visit and bookmark the convention website www.jointconvention.org and check back often for updates.
Online registration for the convention is now open and we are offering attractive early registration discounts for a limited time – please click here or visit http://jointconvention.org/?page_id=5 to register today.
