The convention was chaired by outgoing chairperson Bhumiraj Karki and was hosted by outgoing general secretary Suresh Pariyar. Representatives from various community organisations were present during the programme. The programme started with candle lighting, playing of the national anthem, and a one-minute silence in memory of Dr Dina Bangdel, Nepali art historian and associate professor at the Virginia Commonwealth University, who passed away on July 25.
