Chunav 2018

Dear Alumni,

This is a reminder email for providing nominations for LUGDAA BOT elections. Voting will be online and currently targeted for last week of June. All registered alumni are eligible for casting their vote.

In response to the last email on LUGDAA elections, we thought the Inbox will be inundated with the nominations, but quite the contrary….

So, wait no further…propose your name, if you have skills, time and desire to serve. Or suggest someone who you deem would be a good fit.

Needless to say, a lot of prep work is to be done between now and then; but first things first — we need nominations!

We have 10 days left to give names for the elective positions (Vice President, Joint-Secretary 1, Joint Secretary 2, and Treasurer)

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks and regards,

Suman Jha & Ashabikash Roy Chowdhury
