Happy Diwali to all of you. The state of the ICAGA union is great. We had a banner year with the ICAGA membership continuously increasing. Thanks to you all for making this year a grand success. Thanks to the University of Akron and the Indian Student Association for their support and help in arranging this beautiful facility to celebrate the festivities this year.
Here are our Accomplishments in 2007:
- The number of members grew more than three-fold in just one year! The total family membership is approaching 200 and the total number of members is close to 600. Thank you for this phenomenal achievement!
- We kicked off our own web-site www.ICAGA.org for the first time.
- We defined the Mission Statement and Objectives for ICAGA.
- The ICAGA symbol was created and is being used on the ICAGA letters and web-site.
- We celebrated various events throughout the year:
- I plan to kick-off ICAGA Times on an experimental basis beginning next month, where community events/flyers will be sent out around the 10th of each month. The flyers and announcements in Word, JPEG, or PDF format must be received by 5th of the month.
- I challenge that no other organization in the USA offers so much for just $25 annual membership fee per family! Welcome to ICAGA.
This tremendous growth won’t be possible without the dedication and hard work of my wonderful, energetic and creative Executive Committee and the ICAGA Board. This committee has plenty of young members with abundant energy and experienced members offering their wisdom.
