Umu Igbo Unite Dallas Chapter is the 3rd National chapter founded in August 2013 by Gold Okafor.
Dallas is very excited about this year’s convention in New Jersey. In just 2 years Dallas has become a powerhouse chapter of Umu Igbo Unite. We were the hosting city in 2013. This will be our first unified convention as a chapter. Every year there is a surprise, and now Dallas has the opportunity to be a part of something rich. We are very proud of the success we have accomplished thus far. UIU Dallas has become a well-known chapter and a great representation of Igbo people. Although we have a lot to celebrate, we thank God for the opportunities and blessings we have received. We congratulate Umu Igbo Unite on its 11th Annual Convention, and hope to continue to build this great organization in Dallas Texas.
UIU Dallas has put on numerous events serving Ndi igbo in the Dallas Metroplex.
