The North American Bengali Conference ,widely known as Banga Sammelan, has been celebrated annually in various cities of North America to celebrate Bengali culture. It was first held in New York City in 1981 organized by the Cultural Association of Bengal. Each year, the event has provided opportunities in seminars and workshops, to discuss issues related to our immigrant life and to the new generation of Bengalis in North America. Over the years, the conference has enjoyed an increasing participation and popularity. Renowned personalities from North America, India and Bangladesh have participated in all the previous conferences.
Pursuing the tradition of the event, the PBCA has developed and designed a program for the NABC 2008 to provide a forum to reflect on our life in America and to explore our cultural heritage for a harmonious blending of our thoughts and practices with the multifaceted environment we live in. The hosting of this international conference in Canada is a great event, for it showcases not only the maturity of a young community in Canada, but its commitment to maintain and share its heritage and culture with the rest of Canada's multicultural society. We have here the report on the third and final day of NABC
