NABC 2020 plans to build on the history staging the programs at The Westgate Resort Las Vegas. CAB partnering organizations from all over North America will leave no stone unturned in making the 40th NABC celebration and 50th anniversary of CAB a grand success, he added. North American Bengali Conference will shift the paradigm of the conference from focusing on socialization and entertainment to an emphasis on the exchange of ideas to create cohesive Bengalis, inspire the next generation, and leave a legacy for the future. The North American Bengali Conference (NABC) is an annual Bengali culture conference held in the United States and Canada around the weekend of July 4. It was established in 1981 by the Cultural Association of Bengal in New York, and is hosted by a different organization every year. The conference includes performances, readings, discussion, networking, and provides a platform for reunions of friends, relatives and acquaintances. Performers from the United States, Canada, Bangladesh and India are invited to apprise Indian Americans   of their socio-cultural heritage. NABC, this year, will observe its 40th year. NABC is devoted to discussing issues affecting the NRI community including their cultural identity, the future of the community, its role in an increasingly dynamic and globalized economy and engaging the next generation. There are plenty of networking opportunities, social gatherings, re-unions, film screenings, literary readings and cultural performances, drama play – all dealing with Bengali culture.  NABC kicked off in 1981 when the members of Cultural Association of Bengal (CAB) started a small cultural conference in New York. NABC was organized by CAB in different cities through the local association(s). There are plenty of networking opportunities, social gatherings, re-unions, film screenings, literary readings and cultural performances, drama play – all dealing with Bengali culture, says its website. The organizers are hopeful it will be another memorable Banga Sammelan in the City of Lights, where we create an oasis of Bangaliana in the heart of the desert. (edited by PK Chakravarty)
