NABC objectives : To address all the issues that concern Bengali in North America and West Bengal, India. To act as a forum for Music, dance, art, artifact, seminars on educational/scientific/medical/Business & next generation.
CAB held the first North-American Bengali conference in 1981. Since then the annual conferences are bring held in different cities every year.
NABC has created a unique place for itself in all Bengali minds and has been recognized as perhaps the most successful cultural endeavor of the last three decades, enchantingly reflecting the rich Bengali tradition in art & cult. Embodying the dynamism of the first generation Bengalis in the USA and their fervent vision for the future, NABC is also a testament to successful organizational management, community service, and financial health. In pure commercial terms, the brand value of NABC at present is undeniable - it has reached an enviable height.
Although the primary focus of NABC so far has been on the cultural aspect of the Bengali experience, ideas are being floated on the need to broaden the focus to include educational and economic and other areas of community interest and concern. There are queries as to whether CAB can be turned into a sustainable organization to advance a broader cause, become a force in the cultural, educational and socio-economic development of the communities in US and India. There is a belief that the NABC platform can be leveraged to initiate a movement of worthy missions consistent with the vision and the mission of the CAB.
