The Central Committee met on 1st November, 2020 at IIMC HQ, New Delhi. IIMCAA Awards Co-ordinator Ms. Simrat Gulati presided over the meeting that discussed the possibilities of hosting Connections 2021 and items to continue or do away in next season.
Minutes of the meeting:-
1. The Central Committee discussed the IIMCAA Awards and IIMCAA Scholarships in detail. CC underscored the resources IIMCAA Awards consumes and manpower it requires, to conduct it every year, is very huge.
CC feels that the alumni and the students look at IIMCAA Awards and IIMCAA Scholarships as a third party event and not as a way of connecting, getting involved and giving back to the association in any manner.
The Central Committee has unanimously passed a resolution urging the Governing Council to discontinue the IIMCAA Awards from 2021.
2. CC has resolved to request GC to take up these two items on an urgent basis so that the organising team has clarity on what is on, what is off for Connections 2021.
3. CC has resolved to utilise the savings in raising the amount of fund it earmarks for IIMCAA Medical Assistance Fund, If GC clears the proposal to stop Awards in 2021 and Scholarships in 2024.
4. CC has decided to host the Annual Alumni Meet- Connections 2021 on 7th February, 2021 in Delhi, if situation and guidelines allow. A detailed plan and date for chapter meets will be decided and communicated in due course.
Thanks & Regards,
