Dear MMC Alumni Friends, July 11th, 2018
Thank you all for participating in MMC AANA Gala Reunion of 2018. Hope you all had fun as much I did. I believe it was a successful and fun filled reunion. Was exciting to see you all. Hope you all have enjoyed the fabulous performance of all talented MMCians and guest artist. Thanks to our Convention and Cultural Committee has done an excellent job to organize such a fantastic program for you all.
CME hours was excellent, was hoping for more participation and attendance, hopefully there would be in an expanded program in future convention.
From organizational point of view, we also have made significant progress by ratifying a Constitution and Bylaws for MMC AANA. Thanks to the bylaws committee for finalizing a draft of the Constitution in such short notice and time, now we can move forward to our desired and stated goals.
Annual General Membership Meeting passed few resolutions as follows :
a. Present Executive Committee will continue to lead and function still new Executive Committee is elected.
b. Executive committee will select Election Committee to conduct election for Executive Committee per our newly adopted Constitution and Bylaws.
c. Convention in 2019 will be held on 3rd weekend of June, again in New York to build up the momentum of the organization. Thereafter would be held each year on 3rd weekend of June. Reunion for 2020 and 2021 is tentatively scheduled to be held at California and Florida respectively.
Present Convention Committee will organize New York Convention in 2019, thereafter a Convention Committee would be formed.
Now that we have hosted new website mmcaana.com. it is expected to be much easier to communicate and disseminate the association information to the members. I would strongly encourage all MMCians not only to participate, but also to entice your friends who have been indifferent to MMC DANA or new MMC AANA. I would also encourage you all to get familiarize with our newly adopted Constitution and Bylaws of MMC AANA, now published on our website.
I am hoping to see a much greater number MMCians participation in next year convention.
