PASC Present and Future in Jeopardy

Dear Members,

It is with much regret that we have to announce the cancellation of PASC committee elections due to a low membership turnout. The AGM started off with less than 30 members, most of whom are veteran members and have been showing up on a regular basis to this event. This is an embarrassing incident for an organization that just celebrated a huge milestone – the 20th anniversary in 2013.

Our organization is based largely on time and resources being volunteered by its members and without it our organization cannot survive. It was decided by a majority of votes to postpone the election till March. (The 2012-14 committee has volunteered to stand-in until the elections are completed) Thus the stand-in committee has decided to hold one a deferred election on March 8th. If an election is not conducted at this event, the organization will be adjourned until January of next year. This means there will not be any activities planned for the rest of the year. So this could very well be the last event for the year if there isn’t enough members present to hold an election.

Being in the committee, each of us has had tremendous learning opportunities. The experienced gained from running an organization is helpful is all aspect of our lives. Yes it can be challenging at times, but the time spent volunteering is justified. We urge all the young members, new members, and those that haven’t been part of the committee to come forward and provide a lending hand.

We need everyone to come to our next meeting and voice their opinion, to contribute, and volunteer to carry our organization forward.
Please leave your questions, comments, or concerns below.

  1. Dear PASC Committee Members and all the PASC members

    After reading all the letters addressed by the members in this email to our President I agree that we all should make an effort to come together and get ourselves more involved in the PASC by serving our community. All past Committee members have expressed the benefits they got in serving the community. We should be thankful for the current Committee members for taking one more step in trying to bring our Samaj together.

    Let us not call this Picnic in March THE FINAL PICNIC, but New Beginning.

    Jai Sri Krishna

  2. Dear All @ PASC
    I know of the day the Community Members met @ Simi Valley & made the decision to form an Association.
    I had always supported…I was the Editor for the Newsletter for 10 years….As I am far @ Lancaster I did NOT join the Committee.
    But….knowing that the youngsters interested to be in the Committee, I was filled with Joy.
    As regards myself…..I am of the “old views” of the need for showing the interest for the Community members @ Gujarat were our roots are.! However I strongly believe in caring for the LOCAL Community needs.
    Now…hoping that in March MANY attend & hoping that our PASC is even STRONGER than before.
    Chandravadan
