The 30th MAMCOAANA Convention was held in beautiful Toronto at the Downtown Marriot Eaton Centre (Center) from July 24 to July 27, 2014. Dr. Bharat Kalra and Anu Kalra organized the BEST MAMCOAANA so far. Not only were the food and entertainment world class, but the love and warmth that the Kalra family shared with us all was the true highlight of the convention.
Dr. Dinesh Choudhry, the CME Chair, did a fantastic job putting together a CME that was a great learning experience.
We all were fortunate to have the Dean of MAMC, Dr. Deepak Tempe & his wife, Dr. Anjali Tempe attend the convention. History was created and a new milestone was established, as this was the first MAMCOAANA convention in which the Dean attended the meeting. We had an excellent brainstorming session with Dr. Tempe. I truly believe this is a turning point for our organization as this will lead to a stronger and mutually beneficial relationship between MAMCOANNA & MAMC.
I would like to take the opportunity to now welcome and congratulate the President-elect 2014-2015, Dr. Tarang Sharma who has done a superb job as Secretary for many years. We look forward to her leadership as the President in the future. In addition to Dr. Sharma, we have an extremely dynamic team of leaders, which include Dr. Ashutosh Gupta, Dr. Bhushan Pandey, Dr. Vikas Khurana, Dr. Alok Maheshwari, Dr. Bharat Kalra, Dr. Bhupesh Kaul, Dr. Nikhil Goyal and Dr. Dinesh Choudhry. They all have been working tirelessly and I want to thank each one of them and all the other members who are contributing in their own way for MAMCOAANA.
As we embark on this new journey with stronger and better ties with our Alma mater, I want all of you to start preparing for our next MAMCOAANA Convention to be held in Houston, Texas from July 23 to July 26, 2015. We would love you all to land “Your Eagle” in the Space City next year.
With wonderful memories of MAMCOAANA Reunions over the years, and many more to be created,
