  2. 2. FROM THE PRESIDENT’S DESK Dear Members, Winds of change are blowing across the country. The good part is that the dramatic changes witnessed over the past few months will have a direct bearing in enhancing the Indo-US relations. In the month of May this year, Shri Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India. Soon after assuming office, the Hon’ble U.S. President invited our Prime Minister for a visit to America. The change in guard was also duly acknowledged all over the world. But most importantly I believe President Obama’s overture to our Prime Minister augurs well for widening the scope of bilateral relations and fostering a higher level of bonding amongst the two biggest democracies. Unfortunately this May we lost a very fine friend of India; Ms. Nancy Powell, the US Ambassador, who resigned. This was indeed was great set back to the country and in particular IAS. Ms. Powell was very supportive to enhancing the bilateral relation between US and India. It was our privilege to host Ms. Powell at the Orchid Hotel, last year. This event was held under the aegis of Namaste America, IACC and IAS. Peter Haas, Consul General was also transferred in the month of May and we are eagerly awaiting his successor in office. From March till May we have been organizing diverse lectures and functions of wide ranging topics including a cultural function which was held on 15.03.14. To keep pace with time we also had an excellent lecture at the instance of the MD & CEO of BSE, who dwelt on the Economic Outlook 2014. The rendition of the lecture on Civil War; “The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln” by Mr. Richard Zielinski was engrossing, and held the members spell- bound. It was as if one was actually visualizing the entire episode on a live telecast. The IAS Founders day celebrated on 22nd April, 2014 was a very successful event and we were extremely fortunate to have the presence of Ms. Deanna Abdeen, who was extremely enthusiastic and made it a point to remain present throughout the function, till dinner. Once again my focus is on Educational issues and widening the scope of our courses. My job is not yet complete and lot of work still needs to be done. I am counting on the support of my team of E.C. members and the excellent back office staff who have been working relentlessly to help us reach and achieve our goals. With warm regards and best wishes, Sanjog Parab APPEALTOTHEMEMBERS The Payment of Annual Membership Fee for the Year 2014-2015, From April to March Dear Members, • The IAS thanks it Members who have paid their Membership Fee for the current financial year (2014-15) • The IAS request those who have not yet paid their membership fee, to make the payment as soon as possible but preferably before 15th July 2014 on the basis of letter already sent to you. • We look forward to receiving your renewal and giving us the opportunity to continue to serve you. • Any changes in your email ID, please send the same to below mentioned email id.
