The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) announced it has scheduled the 60th Annual ISNA Convention, on September 1-4, 2023. The event will be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

As in the past 6 decades of its existence, ISNA said it plans to bring prominent Muslim leaders, government officials, community activists, celebrities, guests from the interfaith community, and heads of state.

“Our ability to gather some of the foremost names in the North American landscape is a testament to ISNA’s reach and historical impact over the years. And we are proud and honored to celebrate this legacy at this year’s annual convention,” a press release from the organization said.

The theme of this year’s Convention is “60 Years of Service: Navigating the Way Forward.”

Describing itself as a national leader in advancing interfaith dialogue and civic engagement, ISNA said it has played a pivotal role in shaping the national conversation around Islam by promoting a better understanding of Muslims in America.

Organizers said they expect to welcome “thousands of attendees” including nationally and internationally acclaimed guests, and offer special events, entertainment sessions, and an  expo featuring hundreds of Muslim businesses.

The Islamic Society of North America was founded in 1963. “Its mission is to foster the development of the Muslim community, interfaith relations, civic engagement, and a better understanding of Islam,” the press release said.
