In February we ushered in a new era of collaboration when we hosted the first-ever National Italian American Summit Meeting (NIAS One), with more than 350 groups in virtual attendance.
Now it’s time to discuss our progress at NIAS Two, which will be held this Saturday at 11 a.m. EST via Zoom.
All Italian American groups, clubs, organizations and lodges are invited to attend!

During NIAS One, we covered several key topics:
1.) Unifying our groups to achieve common goals
2.) Developing 21st-century strategies that seek to engage younger generations
3.) Fighting to save Columbus through legal and advocacy efforts
On June 12th, Committee and Sub-Committee Chairs will offer updates on the progress we have made.
We are stronger together, and together we are Italian America.
