Bihar Chapter appointed Mr. Satyavrat Mishra as Organisation Secretary in place of Mr. Avinash Kumar Chanchal. Ms. Teresa Rehman was appointed coordinator for North East Chapter in place of Mr. Rakesh Kumar Das.

3. Bihar Chapter’s Suggestions: 

A The Bihar Chapter has raised the issue of VOTING RIGHTS to state level office bearers.
The Central Committee is of the view and has already made it clear that any or all elections for CC and Chapters/ Sub Chapters are open for voting, if required. CC promotes consensus based elections but at the same time not against the elections. CC, Chapters and Sub Chapters will complete its term in October, 2014. To elect new team there will be a system of online voting by then to equip all members to elect office bearers directly. An alumni just need to get membership to vote or contest elections.
To involve Chapters & Sub Chapters in decision making process, it was decided to form a National Council. Consultation with Chapters/ Sub Chapters are still on over the National Council. Once National Council comes into existence, major policy decision will be taken only by National Council which will meet annually. CC will take care of the organisation & activities on routine basis. To become a member of National Council, an alumni need to become office bearer of CC or Chapter or Sub Chapters. Chapters/ Sub Chapters have 4 seats in National Council as proposed (President, General Secretary, Treasurer & 4th has to be nominated by meeting of chapter/ sub chapter).
B  Bihar Chapter suggested to donate stuffs to Uttarakhand Victims.

IIMCAA will speak to Goonj, a NGO run by IIMCian Mr. Anshu Gupta, for donating money/ clothes/ quilts or utensils to Uttarakhand victims. General Secretary Mr. Animesh Biswas will discuss the procedures of donating the above mentioned stuff with Mr. Gupta. The IIMCAA has also received requests from few IIMCians, who want to go to Uttarakhand to help the local residents. IIMCAA will discuss this matter with Goonj and find out possibilities to send volunteers.
4. Competition for New Batch: A common competition among all department/ campus will be launched in September. Mr. Harshendra VerdhanMr. Gaurav Dikshit & Mr. Madhur will explore the sponsorship opportunities. Mr. Abhinav Garg will explore the print partnerships.
