The long awaited APC USA Convention is scheduled for this weekend and all eyes are now focused on the Garden State of New Jersey as the high powered APC delegation from Freetown complete their 2016 tour of the Diaspora.

On August 12 and 13, 2016, the APC USA Diaspora branch will meet for its biennial conference in New Jersey to discuss the way forward for the branch and transition national leadership from the hard working executive team of Mr. Ibrahim S. Kamara.

The two-day conference will showcase the strengths and accomplishments of the APC in Sierra Leone and its large membership in the United States as well as energize the strong support and cordial relationship that already exists between the Home Office and the USA.

The APC USA branch is made up of fifteen Chapters covering the entire USA and is poised to push the agenda of the APC forward with its laser focused approach to nation-building and implementation of President Ernest Bai Koroma’s Agenda for Prosperity.

The theme for the 2016 APC USA Convention is “Transforming Lives for A Better Sierra Leone”. As we caucus to prepare the way forward and transition to a new national leadership in the USA, our overarching goal is to continue to make the people of Sierra Leone our priority while strengthening the institutions that guarantee our nascent democracy.
