Greetings from Mr. Satish Nair, President, ISWA.
|Dear community members, greetings!
It’s hard to believe that it’s almost 45 days since this Management committee has sworn in the first-ever formal swearing-in ceremony that ISWA has witnessed. It’s great to finally see members of the Indian community unite with their families back in India when borders opened up after the long gap and I’m eagerly looking to meet them as well like most of you. While we can’t go past a good summer in Perth, the weather is getting colder with infrequent showers and there is something inviting about the winters in Perth too. While people tend to hibernate and hide away from the cold, my team is incessantly warmed up with the amazing support we have received so far from all the members.
While the new MC has miles to go in the next two years, we have kick-started the activities with rigour and swiftness and looks like we already laid a solid foundation of goals we are looking to achieve. We are initiating this newsletter-‘ISWA Pulse’ to provide the member’s updates on the ongoing activities and events. Let me run through some of the key activities in the past month.
We started off by setting up the event calendar for the year and appointing the coordinators for each of the events. I know that there are several talented members and my goal will be to club them together in unique and innovative initiatives. The coordinators have initiated their planning process and one of the major ones is the cultural extravaganza -Sangam 2022 which will be held on 6th August 22. The International Day of Yoga and Business Bazaar are events to look forward to in Jun/Jul if you are a wellness enthusiast or a small business owner.
One of the first sub-committees to be formed this year is to review our constitution to recommend amendments to ensure the best outcome for ISWA Life members and Affiliated member associations. Update from the Indian community centre project is that work on the light and sound fittings along with a retractable seating system is being undertaken and should be completed soon.
