NCVAA is the first national Vietnamese bar association and has hosted annual conferences throughout the nation since 2006. Initially envisioned as an annual conference event, the NCVAA made the leap to permanent national organization status by incorporating as a bar association in 2010. The NCVAA is dedicated to the support and network-building of Vietnamese American attorneys nationwide.
