The Annual National Convention is the largest annual gathering of Arab Americans in our nation’s capital and ADC invites you to be part of this annual tradition. This year, the ADC Convention program of panels is built on three tracks: foreign policy, domestic policy, and cultural affairs. A detailed updated program with confirmed and invited panelists and speakers can be viewed at https://www.adc.org/PDF/convsched08.pdf.
Confirmed featured speakers include House Judiciary Chair Congressman John Conyers (D-MI), Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE), former Democratic presidential candidate Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), and Secretary General of the Palestinian National Initiative Mustafa Barghouthi, MD, among others.
ADC will also be hosting international singer Chantal Chamandy who will give a special 90-minute multilingual performance entitled, “Beladi.” In September 2007, Chantal was joined by the Cairo Symphony Orchestra in a sold-out performance of the same show at the feet of the Great Sphinx in Egypt.
