Dear Member,

Bay Area Prabasi announces its annual Election for 2007. If you are

http://www.prabasi.org/Administration/Nomination_Form.pdf 
Completed nomination forms must be received by Jun 15, 2007. You must
apply after reading the pre-qualifications required for joining the Board.
Please note that apart from the general qualifications listed in the form,
we are looking for Directors who have the ability to raise funds for Prabasi.
The newly elected board will start from  July 1st (which is the beginning of
our fiscal year).

We will be announcing the date of the election and the venue shortly.

The nomination Form, duly signed by two members, should be filled up
and faxed (Attn:Prabasi) to: 408-246-8006 on or before Jun 15, 2007.
Also, mail a copy of this form to Bay Area Prabasi Inc.,
PO Box 3493, Fremont, CA 94539 latest  by  Jun 20, 2007 (we should receive
the hardcopy by this date).

ERRATA:  In the last email an error was discovered in one paragraph. The
corrected paragraph reads as follows:
"I would like to redefine the role of Board of Director (BOD). This would be in
line with other non-profit organizations. Along with legal, governance and
stewardship responsibilities, BOD?s main role would be in fund-raising
activities and relationship building with sponsors & other organizations.
Prabasi is a membership driven organization. However, only 40%-60% of our
expenses come from membership dues. Rest must be raised through fund-raising in
the form of donations, advertisement, booths, sponsors, others. As Prabasi
strives to provide greater value to its members without increasing its
membership dues, fund-raising capability of board members become even more
critical. I would like to see each board member make personal commitment to
fund-raising to meet our budget goals."

Sincerely,

Board of Directors
Bay Area Prabasi, Inc.
