Membership

Dear Members,

It is hard to believe, that our 2014 – 2016 memberships are expiring and Executive Committee for 2015 – 2017 will successfully complete their two year term. We are very proud of them for all their hard work, dedication and commitment to our association. They have spent countless of hours apart from their family life for the greater cause to help grow and sustain our association. Definitely, we all, as members have done our best to help in this process and we all deserve a sense of pride, ownership in the association.

Since we are (were) all busy with our daily lives and time flies (flew) so quickly, it is that time now when we need to connect with those family and friends that are not members of our association. As we all know, strength of any organization depends on the number of members and their participation, so it’s very important that we reach out to those family and friends that are not yet members and formally bring them to our association.

Though we will try on our end to reach out to those that are not yet members and request them to consider our membership but without ALL of your help it is not possible. So with this e-mail, we would like to request all the members to get involved in this new membership drive process. Please help us!

We also request all general members to please consider becoming a Life Member. Considering a Life Membership now is much important than ever as we are in a desperate need of our own space. If we have a significant number of Life Members, it can boost our morale to start thinking about getting our own space sooner than later.

Below are the membership types and their eligibility. We have also attached the membership application that needs to be completed to obtain the membership.

Special Member: Any person who is 18 years of age and otherwise do not qualify for any of the membership mentioned above and has interest in Nepali language and culture or works towards the betterment of Nepali community can become a Distinguished Member.

So let’s join together and start our membership drive today throughout the Connecticut and bring more members to our association. It can be as simple as requesting your non-member friends and families to complete the application, collecting them an handing them to one of our executive members or coordinating with one of your friends in the neighboring town to get more members to join our association. Definitely, everyone has their own special skills that they can use to attract more members. You are your own master!
