I will keep "Vote of thanks" short without elaborating not because list of thanks is any small but to cover as much as possible per schedule as this is our last BOD meeting and we have covered many agenda items and to cover the remaining. It will be posted on the site.
All three of us (Dr.Nagabhushana, Latha Mallikarjuna and myself) feel gratitude for having had the opportunity to help our community and be able to serve it. It would not have been possible without the help from you and many others in the community.
First of all, we like to thank chapter Presidents and BOD for all their support through out this period and successfully executing your local chapter duties, passing important motions and working throughout the year for the organization. You have attended meetings and provided feedback, discussed points in detail, asked relevant questions to further organizations interests, contributed to activities like newsletters, raising funds for charities, etc. and many more. Again, we like to thank you for all your support to VSNA.
We also like to thank BOR for providing support during the convention and other times throughout the period.
We also like to thank many BOD and non-BOD members who volunteered to help in committees including VSNA award selection committee, by-laws committee, finance committee, election committee, convention committees and others. Committees help was instrumental in completing strategic and important milestones for the organization. Committees and it s members have spent their valuable time handling their charters with grace and professionalism.
Seniors in VSNA organization provide pivotal input for continuity and guiding. They have undying interest to make sure that organization continues to lead the community and whole heartedly willing to spend time and/or money for the organization success. We like to thank for their outstanding help and service. Their suggestions and guidance were invaluable.
Holding convention is always a time of pride for the local chapter bringing it into spotlight. We understand how much effort, time and dedication is involved in hosting a successful convention and all three of us having spent many, many hours appreciate Chicago, Toronto for hosting excellent, successful conventions. We like to thank both the chapters. Now, the chapter that came forward with great enthusiasm and have already planned very well for the 2011 convention. That is New England chapter. Thank you for carrying on the tradition and responsibility to do so.
In the similar note, we like to thank the newly elected officers of 2011 and '12 who we are sure will take on this responsibility and successfully perform their duties. So are newly elected BOD members. Thank you.
Before I move to final thank you note for the VSNA community, I personally want to thank Dr.Nagabhushana and Latha Mallikarjuna for their outstanding work and it was pleasure working with them. They have toiled through many hours, email threads and numerous meetings to efficiently handle multiple tasks without complaining and doing a excellent job while simultaneously handling their regular jobs. Thank you both.
Finally, we like to thank each and every member of the community without whom the organization would not exist. It is cliché to say it, but it is true for our organization for all the volunteer help that they have provided at each and every local chapter. We are an organization in a foreign country trying to uphold the virtues of our community over last many decades. Any contribution either financial, membership, kids performance in local chapter, community service or any activity will help further this. So thank you for all your contribution to VSNA.
