The National Federation of Indian American Associations (NFIA), headed by Inder Singh, organized the First Global Convention of People of Indian Origin in New York from August 28th to September 3rd, 1989 with the objectives of sharing the experience of international Indian communities on a common forum and to foster harmony with a feeling of brotherhood and fellowship amongst the people of Indian origin. The convention officers were: Dr. Thomas Abraham (Convener), Sudha Acharya (Co-Convener and Executive Secretary), Dhiraj Solanki (Co-Convener and Treasurer), and Co-Conveners Ram Gadhavi, Dr. Jagat Motwani and Sureshwar Prasad Singh.

The convention attended by over 3000 delegates was a tremendous success, which identified and discussed problems facing people of Indian origin. It also provided necessary fora at the national and international level to voice their concerns. For the first time, a book on Migration of Indians Around the World was published at the convention where twenty six resolutions pertaining to the various issues and interests of the community were adopted.
