The Turkic American Convention is the most eminent annual gathering that is focused on strengthening political, social and economic ties between the Turkic countries and the United States. It brings together a diverse range of stakeholders, including government officials and parliamentary delegations from the Turkic countries, U.S. government officials, U.S. Senators and Members of Congress, emissaries, leaders of the Turkic Diaspora, private sector stakeholders, representatives of multinational corporations, representatives of international organizations, academics and experts.
The Turkic American Convention is organized by the Turkic American Alliance, the largest national Turkic organization in the United States, representing six regional federations and over 240 community associations, cultural and dialogue centers, business chambers and education institutions. The Turkic American Alliance also functions as a powerful advocate for dialogue not only among the Turkic American and other American communities, but also among the Turkic states and The United States.
