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.
