Mission of CTAA[edit]

The CTAA's mission is to serve as a resource about the Turkic American community with the purpose of bringing people together with an interest in the American and Turkic cultures. CTAA organizes public and private programs to address important issues that relate to the Turkic American community and US-Turkic relations. The CTAA events include conventions, State Capitol Turkic Days, festivals, trips to the Turkic World, and friendship dinners.[citation needed]

History of CTAA[edit]

As the migrations to the U.S. from Turkic countries has increased, Turkic-Americans have started to establish many local organizations to preserve their culture for their generations. Both small and large, many Turkic communities in the U.S. have existed for more than 30 years. These Turkic American communities include: Azerbijani, Kazkh, Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Turkmen, and Turkish communities in the U.S. However, most of them were not part of any civil society organization. In 2010, the Council of Turkic American Associations was founded in New York City, to better serve it 45 member organizations.


There are currently 45 members under CTAA umbrella:
