BACDA USA operates on a fiscal calendar that runs from July to June and so we take stock of what we achieved for the past year in the month of July. Every third weekend of July members of BACDA USA are hosted by one of its chapters. At the beginning of the union hosting was decided on the convention floor however, under the leadership of Dr. Joe Ngalle a tentative schedule for hosting conventions was agreed.

We need to make sure we’re all working together to change mindsets, to change attitudes, and to fight against the bad habits that we have as a society.

BACDA USA National conventions is the time when members from all chapters including independent members come together and take stock of the past year, plot a course for the future and elect its national executives.
