The Annual National Congress & Convention of Haitian-Americans is a partnership between the Haitian League and the Haitian-American Leadership Council.  From October 10-12, members of the Haitian Diaspora came together to discuss how they could contribute to Haiti's development.  Topics discussed included remittances, direct investment, development assistance, dual citizenship, and adovcacy.  Below is a summary of the discussion and a list of next steps.  The Diaspora has much to offer and forums such as this help to keep Haitians abroad connected.
