More about him here
It is with mixed feelings that I am writing to all of you one last time. My term as the first elected President of CITLoB ends later this month and since I decided not to run for this post again, this will be my final note to all of you.
I said that I was writing with mixed feelings because goodbyes always also imply new beginnings and, as much as I will miss interacting with all of you and with our stakeholders in the industry in my current capacity, I am glad that a new leadership team will take over soon. This, in my eyes, is a brilliant opportunity for us to show the world the democratic nature of our association and the immense depth in our leadership. A new team will also bring in new energy and ideas and I am sure you would agree that we can never have enough of those.
I am excited to work closely with the new team and support them in whatever way I can as I hope all of you would too. In fact, the first major event the new team will organise will be our annual conference – Samvād. I will leave it to the future office bearers to talk to you about what plans they have in store.
In the meantime, I would like to urge you to exercise your right to run for one of the posts and/or vote to see your candidate take office. I hope all of you will continue to take advantage of the various activities the association organizes and also support it as you always have.
Do take care of yourself and your families and stay safe. Happy reading and happy CITLoBing.
