The Conference, now in its 20th year, is presented annually by founding partners, The American-Scottish Foundation and CHICAGO SCOTS in association with St. Andrew's Society of Detroit, Council of Scottish Clans & Associations (COSCA), Clans And Scottish Societies of Canada (CASSOC), the Toronto, Ontario-based Scottish Studies Foundation and the University of Guelph.
The Conference is an opportunity for those of us in the Scottish North American community to share views, values, experiences and best practices.
The conference aims to raise awareness of Scotland and Scottish culture; to develop a better understanding of the roles, objectives and operations of the various government, academic, non-profit and private sector organizations that operate in the Scottish-North American community and to identify opportunities to enhance communication and collaboration within the community.
SNACC encourages, and hopes, you will add your voice to the conversation. In 2020 the Scottish American diaspora joined in greater numbers than ever as the conference was presented virtually.
SNACC looks forward to us gathering once again in person whilst continuing to offer the Conference virtually as well.
Tickets are now available for the 2021 Scottish North American Community Conference.
The theme for Conference 2021 is 'Expressions of Scottishness... Exploring the Full Dimensions of Scotland's Engagement with North America in 2021'.
The program for Conference will be revealed very soon.
The Conference will be delivered online on Zoom and will feature prominent guest presenters from Scotland and the Scottish North American community.
