From its conception in 2011, the DMV CSA’s  mission has always  been to address issues pertaining to culture, education and career  development. By forming a parent organization for Caribbean  Students’ Associations and other similar organizations DMV CSA has  come to play a vital role in uniting Caribbean students in the DMV  area.

The organization hosts staple events through out the school’s  year with a social event in the Fall and the annual DMV CSA

Conference in the Spring; both events aiming at unity and  development.

Over time, DMV CSA intends to increase the universities and  organizations involved and to foster relationships with different  companies to widen the networking possibilities for each student that  participates.


DMV CSA has always had it as one of its focus to hold a Conference annually for its  member organizations. To this end, the DMV CSA has had four successful regional  conferences. The inaugural DMV CSA conference, “Legacy and Leadership: Turning Vision  into Action”, took place March 2-4 2012 at the Double Tree Hilton in downtown Silver Spring,  MD. Since then, we have hosted three more conferences at varying locations.

Our three-day conferences consist of an official welcome ceremony, panel discussions,  speakers, a professional development session, enlightening breakout discussions, a talent show,  and two social gatherings. Several Caribbean Ambassadors, dignitaries and professionals  support the event every year. Some past Key Note and Welcome speakers include: the  ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago: Honorable Neil Parsan, former ambassador of Jamaica:  Curtis Ward and OAS Ambassador Albert Ramdin.
