2nd Volunteer Meeting
Second volunteer meeting was held on December 6, 2014 at Tufts university. Despite rain over 30 alums attended the meeting. After some tea and snacks, the meeting started with Ajay Bhardwaj asking few IIT trivia questions that everyone enjoyed. They were followed by Raj Laad presenting PanIIT’s composition, charter and activities. He answered several questions from audience. Ajay Bharadwaj presented 2016 conference mission, potential themes, core and advisory team, summary of plan and financials. He explained how volunteers can help by actively participating, reaching out to others and donating. Raj Laad described the notion of crowd funding where alumni can donate over three years.
Three teams, viz. Marketing, Sponsorship and Program, were formed among volunteers who brainstormed activities of each team. Those ideas were presented to the group as a whole.
The meeting was very productive and lot of ideas were discussed which will be reviewed as we plan for the conference.
