WELCOME TO THE SACRAMENTO ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIANS

Welcome, to the Sacramento (Capital) Association of Nigerians’s website. SAN is a vibrant community of Nigerians, working harmoniously with sister African communities and other US associations of common and mutual interests.

Founded since 1991 as a non-profit association by a group of well-meaning and patriotic Nigerians, SAN  has grown to become the primary source of information,  cultural events and matter of interest to the Nigerian and indeed African communities in the Sacramento Valley and other parts of the US. We believe in being there for each other, operate with integrity, and love to share our culture and heritage with others.

SAN is an organization of enthusiastic membership, with lots of opportunities for rewarding participation as Board of Directors, Members of Executive Council, Committee members and Advisers. All are welcome to join us.

Best of regards,

Frank McMaye

President, SAN

LATEST NEWS!

UPDATE ON COVID-19

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope you and your families, wherever they are, are all doing well. Nothing is more important right now than the health and safety of our members and the community we serve. Therefore, due to the current situation in the country and around the world, and in compliance with the advice of CDC and healthcare professionals for social distancing, we have canceled physical monthly meetings.

However, because we have so many important projects in flight, we have decided to attempt our virtual (Online, General Meeting) so you can call in from home or wherever you happen to be. No guarantee how well it will go, but we’ll try.  In the meantime, we should be prepared that some or all activities planned for this year will be impacted as a result of the coronavirus. To what extent, we do not know yet. For now, we know:

  1. The coalition of SAN, NAPAC-California, CAPCR, CAUD and PRONACO-USA decided to suspend plans for the Information Forum on the Visa/Travel Ban, which we had previously targeted for April 4th. The team will continue to gather information and regroup in a month.
  2. The Special Event to recognize our high government appointees has been cancelled until further notice
  3. We hope that impacts on other activities planned for later in the year, such as the Youth event, Passport Event, 4th of July, and Nigerian Independence will be minimal.

Please stay tuned for more information on the virus and any impacts on our events and our community. I wish you all the best in this challenging time. We pray for all of us, our host country, our country of origin and the world. Keep up your faith, stay positive, and adhere to all recommended cautionary safe behaviors and practices.

Stay Blessed!!

Frank McMaye, President.
