Jai Shri Krishna,
Namaste to all,
First of all, on behalf of entire GSSA 2019 Executive committee, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve as president of this community for 2019. I would like to thank the executive committee members of 2018 for their services to the community. Also my sincere thanks to all the past presidents and their committee for their commitment, dedication and volunteerism in serving our Samaj. I am extremely thankful for our returning executive committee members such as Raj Patel, Jagdish Chandra, Sunita Sue Patel, Arti Bhakta, Harin Amin, Bhakti Patel and Bimal Patel for their continued support and dedication to our Samaj.
As we embark into the new year, we plan to continue the strong tradition of GSSA events and activities that we have built over the years. We also want to take some strategic steps that will secure us a strong GSSA position in the future. Our goal as a team is to provide a memorable experience at each and every event to our members and the community. We cannot achieve any of this without active participation from our member volunteers during each event. Therefore I would like to invite and encourage all members to come forward and participate in all capacities including leadership in various events.
I have been a member of GSSA for the past 15 years and the unity showed loud and clear that keeping culture and heritage alive was extremely important to everyone in our community. We must keep connected with our grass roots and heritage and motivating everyone both young and old and everyone in between to keep in touch with the identity and roots we all come from. It only takes a quick skip in generation for this to start fading. I
GSSA President 2019
