EC 2014 very much appreciates and values the contribution given in any kind or form, from the community


AC's priorities: Increase the scope of the Admin. Team

We want to add some more functions to the above list in order to have smoother operation, and for that we are seeking volunteers from the Marathi community who have some background/experience, and who can study, analyse, and write procedures and monitoring mechanism for the following: o. creating and maintaining a registry of rental facilities o. creating and maintaining a registry of resources to carry out Public Relations o. creating and maintaining a pool of volunteers o. maintaining a register of media people for publicity purposes o. finance (consolidation of investment records, process of reporting to CRA and other government agencies) o. general administration(inventory of assets, archiving MBM records, smooth transition from one year to the next)

It is necessary that these tasks are carried out smoothly and consistently year after year.

The Admin Team is a supporting structure and a knowledge source with procedures and databases for maintaining consistency in the Mandal activities. It does not have executive powers. The members of this team are not elected, but chosen by AC. They will function under AC's guidance to disseminate information when needed. The AC will be solely responsible for selecting suitable individuals for the above tasks.
