Jai Shree Krishna and Namaste to all GSSA Members ! ,
First, I would like to thank each one of you for giving me an opportunity to serve as a president of Gujarati Samaj of San Antonio. It is my special honor and privilege to begin my term as president of the Samaj. I would like to pray to God to give me enough strength and guidance, so I can do justice to the position which has been filled by so many distinguished and elite members of Gujarati Samaj of San Antonio. With the help of continuing and newly appointed Executive Committee Members & Board of Trustees I would like to take Samaj to a new level. I would request my team as well as all members to think with open and fair mind and come up with fresh ideas, on how to serve our community better. I challenge my team to find ways to solve problems faced by Gujarati community and unite them.
I would like to use traditional and digital media to reach out to each member of Gujarati community and invite them to actively participate in our activity. I know that task is big, but I vow to tackle the challenge and come out with the victory. I would like to see GSSA involve in, so many challenges faced by our society. My team and I will help, children facing education and career issues, seniors needing assistance with computer skills, children that need to learn Gujarati and would love to help someone who just needs a shoulder to cry on. We will plan so many activities and events that all members will be proud. I have so much confidence in my executive team as well as the board of trustees that I know my entire dream will come true. I am requesting support from all past presidents as well as EC, BOT, and experienced members, I know your experience is very valuable and we do need your guidance to run Samaj.
I am requesting all members of our Samaj to actively participate and help us out in any way possible. One can help financially, devoting free time as a volunteer or just tell us few words of encouragement. I have open door policy and I welcome suggestion and solution from everyone. If someone has an idea about any event that can benefit to the society, I encourage them to come and take leadership and plan. My entire team and I will be behind you to support and make you successful. I know that youth is an important part of our society and families, and I request EC and BOT members to find ways to attract them and get them involved. I am requesting each member to bring at least one more friend and ask them to become a member of the Samaj.
