The Conference

The IABA Annual National Conference is so much more than just a conference. It gathers experts from every industry in the Iranian American community. It's the place where innovators, and people who have an impact, gather around to learn more about the latest status of the Iranian American community in the United States.

Topics range from the latest status of the travel ban and immigration law to public policy and advocacy. Not to mention that we have some amazing keynote speakers-which we will announce soon.( Plus excellent music, lots of laughs, an amazing dinner and creative networking). Most importantly it's a way to give back to your community.
