2018-19 President’s Message

Dear Friends,

The 2018 MAMCOAANA Convention was a big success thanks to great efforts by Dr Sonali and Dr Vivek Mishra. They have given us a great experience and Dr Bharti Khurana conducted an incredible CME Meeting.

I will never forget these moments of learning, joy and celebration with my Classmates -some of whom I met after 24 years. I am sure all participants share these feelings. What a great event for networking!

Our Annual meeting with the Alumni is something special. Days and nights spent at MAMC (1989 -1994) created friendships that have become strong and lasted a lifetime. Besides renewing the past bonds – I find that we make new friends and discover fresh connections with our Alumni.

My wife Manjari graduated from LHMC in 1996. With us attending MAMCOAANA she has also renewed old friendships and made new contacts with Hardinge Alumni. We are delighted to invite LHMC Alumni to attend next year’s meeting as well.

The World is really a small place as long as we are willing to open our arms and get to know each other. I feel that in all of us there is a perpetual longing to reunite with our roots.

MAMCOAANA is becoming a steadily growing family that welcomes new members every year. I encourage young graduates as well as those who have been on the fence to become life members this year.

I would like to continue the tradition of this Annual convention by inviting Alumni to join us at —

35th ANNUAL MAMCOAANA CONVENTION 2019.

Dates – Thursday July 25 to Sunday July 28, 2019.
Hotel – Swissotel, Chicago

We are in the process of creating a great program (includes Family fun time at the Beach, Musical Evening, Gupshup, Shayari, Tennis Tournament, Gala dinner).

Get ready to have a blast.

Save the dates and make travel plans to Chicago – July 25 to 28th, 2019

2017-18 President’s Message

As I embark on the next phase of my association with MAMCOAANA, as the president for year 2017-2018, I have a sense of responsibility and pleasure in welcoming you all to Chicago next year. The recently concluded convention under Dr. Tarang and Tony Sharma, was great fun,very well organized,  and I hope to recreate some of that fun next year, when we meet again.

It has been 30 years since I joined MAMC and 18 years in Chicagoland, my adopted hometown after Delhi. There has never been a day, when my identity as a Maulanian is lost on me. My first MAMCOAANA meeting was in Chicago, held under Dr Gupta. I got hooked on to it, and since that time, I have attended most of the conventions and have enjoyed every moment of my association.

In this day and age of Whatsap and Facebook, the question arises- what is the purpose of our existence ?  My answer to that is simple – Human touch. Having whatsap group for individual joining years is great, but it pales in comparison to the emotional connection that we make at the convention and fun that we have as MAMC family, irrespective of our joining years when we meet.

Next years’s agenda is already made up with a boat cruise in Lake Michigan on Friday and the Gala on Saturday. Chicago is an amazing city in summer. So get your bags packing and book your tickets for July 26th, Thursday to July 29th Sunday, 2018.

See you there.
