Greetings from Mr. Deepak Sharma, President, ISWA.

Dear community members, greetings!

Dear community members, greetings!

It’s hard to believe it’s already been nearly 1.5 months since our Management Committee (MC) took office, culminating in a vibrant oath-taking ceremony on May 11, 2024. We are fortunate to have a blend of fresh energetic faces alongside seasoned committee members. In the MC. With the team now settled, we are eager to kick-off the year with exciting new projects and ideas.

Our activities for the year began with organizing an informative MyAged Care session for eligible seniors on June 11, 2024. Partnering with Umbrella Multicultural Community Care Services, ISWA will offer free walk-in access support services every third Tuesday of the month at the ISWA center. Looking ahead, our calendar is packed with events like International Day of Yoga celebrations on June 23, Sangam on July 28, and the India Day Parade on August 11.

The MC has pinpointed key areas for community engagement, appointing activity leads and coordinators for major ISWA events. We’ve identified initiatives spanning sports, business, community support, website & IT services, family support, and health to pursue in the coming year. Our coordinators are already hard at work, diligently planning for these upcoming programs.

In our quest to involve talented and motivated community members, we will regularly seek expressions of interest to request their participation. Currently, we are inviting interests for the ICC subcommittee and a cultural subcommittee. We realised, based on our experience earlier this year, that the election process for the ISWA life member representatives and the ISWA Management Committee needed special attention. Hence, we are inviting community members to join a subcommittee aimed at addressing recent election challenges.

Building on previous initiatives, several ongoing projects from the last MC are continuing, including the capital works for improving auditorium experience at the Indian Community Centre. Efforts are underway to enhance the auditorium’s acoustics and sound system, and are expected to be completed soon.

Your active support for ISWA programs throughout the year is invaluable. Given the changing season, I encourage all members to stay prepared, including getting their flu shots and remaining cautious as we continue to navigate the lingering shadow of Covid-19. Stay tuned for further updates on the exciting initiatives planned by our dynamic MC.

Warm Regards,
Deepak Sharma
