Akwa Ibom State Association of Nigeria (USA), Inc. (AKISAN USA), formally invites Award Wining Singer Sister Liz as Special Guest, to the 35th Annual National Convention 2022
This event will bring together over 5,000 citizens, friends and associates of Akwa Ibom State of Nigeria from all over the world to celebrate our rich cultural heritage and support our community development initiatives. During our August
event, your health and that of all attendees is of utmost importance to us. Granted many
individuals the world over will be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the time we meet, you can rest
assured that all COVID-19 protocols, as required by the United States Centers for Disease and
Control will be observed, nonetheless.
This year’s convention theme is “Shaping Our Future: Through Integration and Innovation”.
Living in a post-covid world, we must take advantage of the moment and come up with disruptive
ways to make a difference in the organization and the communities where we serve, both in the
United States and Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. “Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.”
We will therefore shape the future of AKISAN USA, and by extension, the people we serve, by
preparing and training our minds to think about Integration, Inspiration, and Innovation today.
The convention begins on Thursday, August 12th with the BOT Awards Night and Reception
by host chapter. On Friday, we will have a Business Summit, Business Meeting, and Cultural Night in
the evening. Our Cultural Night features all our delicacies and display of our culture. Cultural
night also features our Miss and Mr. AKISAN USA pageant. On Saturday, we plan to have
Breakout sessions, a Youth summit, Women’s summit, Sports competition, Townhall hosted by
the Akwa Ibom State Government, and our main event – the Fundraiser/banquet. This is where
we raise funds for our 2022 projects – scholarship to deserving students in the United States and
Akwa Ibom State, medical mission and our various vocational training programs (software and
web development, digital marketing, soap making, culinary arts, agrobusiness, make up and make up and fashion design).
We will conclude the convention with an End of Convention Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, August 14, 2022.
