Dear Community Members,
Happy New Year 2023!
I am delighted that we completed 1 year of an amazing journey together with the strategic goal of “MAKING AN IMPACTFUL DIFFERENCE”. I cherish the pride of being part of the wonderful Team of MMA Board of Directors, Mithra and Yuva representatives who have always remained focused on supporting our community for accomplishing our goals of improving the community experiences, building, and expanding connections, and sustaining changes. We also appreciate all the support and help provided by our Sponsors, Partner Organizations and Businesses, Donors, Volunteers, Well Wishers and last but not the least, our beloved MMA Members.
As we look forward to 2023, we have a change in our Board of Directors positions. Current Board of Directors Veena Tharayil and Sowmya Gopinathan decided to step down from the Board of Director duties due to their personal commitments. I would like to welcome Neelima Krishnan and Ajay Raghavan as the new Board of Directors for the positions of Director at Large. Neelima will focus on supporting Marketing & Communications and Ajay will help us to drive our Charity initiatives. We wholeheartedly THANK YOU both Veena Tharayil and Sowmya Gopinathan for their relentless support and help during the year 2022. We wish them best of luck and look forward to them continuing as MMA volunteers.
We have a one year scheduled plan of events and programs for our community. Mithra and Yuva will publish their dates as well. Here are the key dates for 2023. We will have the website calendar reflect these dates too. Please save the dates and plan to participate and support your favorite events.
