As I think about our Association, I’d like to say it’s an honor to have the opportunity to serve for the next three years as your President. I’m grateful to those past Presidents and Executive members who have worked and devoted personal resources to lend to the vision that makes GJS, UK the strong, successful organization it is today.
I owe a great amount of thanks to founder President Om Thapa and Immediate Ex. President Arjun Gautam, who over the years has been an outstanding leader and colleague. During their presidency, they put much effort into increasing how efficiently and purposefully the Association moves, and did so in a manner which was highly professional and caring. Their work with the Executive Committee to revise our By-Laws allows for the rapid gathering of ideas, resulting in timely decision-making which is important for many Committees functions. In my several years of involvement, I have learned that the inherent drive and dedication of the committee comes from a history of nurturing by our past Presidents, and I also extend special thanks to all previous Executives.
As I assume this role, I keep in mind the trust and belief I have in the Executive Committee. They are a group with exceptional aptitude and sense of service. I look forward to working with each of them to accomplish our goals and contribute to the overall mission of GJS UK.
In addition, the Association looks to reach out to prospective members and engage those who bring a wealth of knowledge through practical applications in the committee. We encourage members, new as well as seasoned to share their views, experience or expertise by submitting articles for this newsletter, project abstracts, or assisting as a volunteer at our annual meeting. To assist and support active members, the Association will continue to make service awards to those well-deserving recipients.
Lastly, and once again, I’m grateful for the support and honored to have the opportunity to serve as President of this dutiful organization. In my efforts I will hold true to the mission of the Association.
GJS UK President
