Teej celebration will be held at hall somewhere. Hall is not confirmed yet. The Dashain will be celebrated at NHCC.
The program committee led by Mrs. Marhatta will decide about the date, venue and registration fees about Teej celebration. About Teej, it will be just after the joint convention so the participants might be less (it was raised as a concern during the discussion as an input for the program committee if it needs to be decided otherwise).
10/12 program’s progress update was made by BOD Santwana Khadka.
Rajan and Samir will explore the possibility to write and prepare a proposal before the deadline if possible.
There are 5 different accounts in 2 banks. There is little (or no) money in accounts. So, maintenance fee is also an issue. Avoid the maintenance fee and if required close current accounts and open another account in a regional/local banks to avoid maintenance fee. Need more money and donors!
Considering the demand of community members for building a Temple at NHCC, a Town hall meeting (all members and well-wishes are cordially invited) to brainstorm the ideas and to hear the suggestions will be held on Saturday (August 15th) from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
Resignation made by Roshan Bhandari , the General Secretary of TNCC due to his personal health concern/issue has been approved by thanking him for his great community service and contributions. TNCC Board also wished him for his speedy recovery and better life ahead. Until this position is filled, current Joint-Secretary will be served as acting General Secretary.
Any interested candidates for the position should contact the TNCC BODs. This position needs to be filled as soon as possible because the NASeA-ANMA joint-convention is happening here in few weeks. It will also be discussed in the town hall meeting at NHCC on Saturday (August 15th) from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Current status is satisfactory but more work to be done as the registered participants are more than in previous conventions.
