The National Immigrant Integration Conference is the signature event of the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA). NIIC 2016 will be held in Nashville, TN and is co-hosted with the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC). Registration is open! Join us!


Check out Nashville Mayor Megan Barry’s personal invitation to join us in Nashville for the NIIC! A former Metro Council member and TIRRC advisory board member, Mayor Barry, the city's first woman mayor, is a longtime champion for immigrant rights and immigrant integration in Music City.



In Summer 2016, for the first-time in NIIC's history, we debuted an open Call for Proposals to solicit conference session proposals from the entire NIIC community to help bring fresh ideas and new contributions to NIIC.

We received 118 submissions from all across the country. These included:

80 proposals for Track Sessions - with the greatest percentage of them in the State & Local Strategies and Welcoming Communities track areas

17 proposals for Plenary Sessions

21 proposals for Affinity Group Caucuses

While the NIIC program planning teams will not be able to incorporate every suggestion that was shared, collectively, this input from the NIIC community will play an essential part in shaping the NIIC sessions for 2016. Preliminary information about the NIIC schedule is here. For background information about NIIC 2015 and what has typically been featured at NIIC, please click here


NIIC 2016 will be held at the Omni Nashville Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Nashville, adjoining the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum and directly across the street from the Music City Center. 

NIIC has reserved a block of hotel rooms at the discounted rate of $184 per night. Hotel room reservations must be made directly via the Omni at this reservation link. Hotel rooms are NOT included in NIIC registration.

Please note that the deadline for NIIC's discounted rooms is NOVEMBER 7, 2016; we encourage you to make your reservation now!

The Omni is a landmark property and the second largest hotel in TN. It reflects the city’s vibrant music culture and is just a few blocks from the historic Ryman Auditorium, home to the Grand Ole Opry; Schermerhorn Symphony Hall; the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, the Johnny Cash Museum and many other attractions in Music City.



2016 marks NIIC’s ninth year of leading the conversation and strategy about immigrant integration in the United States. Over 1,400 people attended the 2015 NIIC -- New American Dreams: Advancing Opportunity, Equality & Justice -- that was held in New York City December 13-15, 2015.
