Primary sources The North American Bengali Conference (NABC) is an annual conference held in North America on Bengali culture. It is usually held around the weekend of, preceding, or following July 4. Since starting in 1980 in New York City under the sponsorship of the Cultural Association of Bengal, it has spread to several cities in the United States and Canada. During the event, people discuss issues affecting the Bengali and Bengali-American community including cultural identity and issues,[1] the future of the community, addressing unique issues affecting the community, networking opportunities, social gatherings, class re-unions, movie showings, literary readings and cultural performances dealing with Bengali culture.

NABC Youth and Next Generation

NABC Youth is a sub organization of NABC that tries to bring together the youth participating in the conference to help promote a common identity and cultural awareness for the age group. It is unknown when exactly a formal youth organization was set up, but events geared toward the younger generation have been around since the beginning of NABC.

In 2005 at its 25th anniversary, the NABC created the NABC Next Generation as an evolution of NABC Youth. The thought among the organizers was that the second generation of Bengalis had grown beyond the age to be considered "youth" anymore. Thus, they created the Next Generation program to address issues faced by 1.5 or second generation Bengalis born in North America.
