The National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) is a network of local, independent Arab-American organizations, which Alwan for the Arts has recently joined. The Network's primary mission is the development of community-based Arab-American organizations that meet the needs of Arab-Americans locally, while collectively addressingn these concerns nationally. NNAAC is a program of ACCESS (Arab Community Center for Economic and Socila Services), a non-profit agency committed to advocating for and empowering individuals, families, and communities.

The conference is an opportunity for the leaders of Arab-American organizations and other non-profits to come together to learn new skills, share approaches, learn about resources, meet old and new colleagues, and renew energies.
