Odisha Society of the Americas' Golden Jubilee Convention

About This Convention

Celebrate 50 glorious years of togetherness

We are privileged to live in the oldest democracy. Democracy starts with a “D”. So do diversity and differences. These 3 D’s are essential to maintain democracy. Our democracy is stronger and has lived longer because of them. Our demographics is changing. Needs and aspiration of immigrants and second generation Odias is changing. OSA as a custodian of culture is at an inflection point. To embrace the new generation, we need to adopt. To remain relevant, we need to adopt. To become stronger, we need members. Let’s build bridges. Not bridge to nowhere. But, bridge to the future. To celebrate 50 glorious years of our togetherness and to build bridges to the future, we invite everyone to join us during July 4-7, 2019 at Harrah’s Atlantic City, New Jersey. This convention will bring Odias together from the North Americas and the world to celebrate our culture and build bridges for the next 50 years. To do so, we will mobilize to meet the needs and aspirations of the generation born here and arriving from Odisha as new immigrations. Yes, we believe in prosperity. Jobs, immigration, investment and business are in our mind beyond serving as the custodian of culture. Come with friends and families!
