Annual Convention 1998

As Good as it Gets
14th annual convention of the Sindhi Association of North America was held at The Westin Hotel O’Hare airport Chicago Illinois from July 2-5, 1998.

The 1998 SANA convention was one of the most memorable conventions as it attracted so many individuals and organization with a variety of programs and missions. Indeed, it achieved one of the SANA’s important mission goals to serve as a meeting point where all Sindhis feel at ease to debate issues, exchange views and share their experiences. The multi-dimentional interactions on intellectual, literature, family, friendship and political spheres were thrilling. The diversity of ideas and themes were delightful, stimulating, challenging and inspiring.
