Announcing the 2012 ADC National Convention








Washington, DC | | February 21, 2012 – Every June in Washington DC, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) hosts its annual convention. The convention continues to be the largest national gathering of Arab Americans every year.

Registration for the 2012 ADC National Convention being held June 21 to 24, is now available online! AllADC members and supporters are welcome at the convention and encouraged to take advantage of early-bird discount rates while they last. 

These four days in June are about you and for you; the success of the convention is largely determined by your participation and involvement. 

Convention attendees from across the country will converge on the nation’s capital to address important policy issues affecting all Americans, as well as celebrate our Arab cultural heritage. We invite you to be part of this tradition!

ADC President, Warren David, anticipates that the attendance this year will be at an all-time high. He encourages all ADC members to invite their family, friends, and colleagues to unite in making the Arab American voice heard.

Our theme this year is "Taking Charge, Moving Forward: Decision 2012." Moving forward means coming together as one community in all our richness and diversity, and creating our own narrative. 

As many of you know, we have been working intensely to move ADC forward, so it would only seem right for this year's agenda to reflect the new ADC initiatives and developments. The 2012 agenda will be unique -- we are shaking up old traditions and putting a fresh spin on them!

Well-informed, thought-provoking speakers will give in-depth analysis of current issues and events, and generate dialogue. Together, we will devise the necessary strategies and create tools to organize our community. 

The agenda will be released soon. Until then, we encourage you to get ahead of the game and register now! Early-bird rates expire Monday, April 23. Do not wait until the last minute to purchase your package.
