I thank all the members of IADVL for placing your trust in me and bestowing upon me the honour and privilege of serving IADVL as the Honorary Secretary General for the term 2022-2024.
President Dr Rashmi Sarkar and President Elect Dr Vijay Zawar are two dynamic and inspiring leaders and I look forward to working with them and our committed EC members. The presence of Dr Savitha A S, Honorary Treasurer, would be an added advantage to ensure a smoother and efficient functioning of the Association over the next 2 years of my term.
It is also my pleasure to work along with the State IADVL branches, Academy, SIGs, Coordinators and Convenors of various Committees and the very dedicated teams of allthe Cells,Task Forcestowards making IADVL stronger.
I wish to acknowledge the achievements of our outgoing EC whose steady and pragmatic leadership has helped our glorious association sail through the turbulent tides of COVID-19. I am especially grateful to Dr Feroz K., from whom I have picked up the baton, for the monumental work done by him in the last 2 years as Secretary General of IADVL and for facilitating a smooth transfer.
Our illustrious association is celebrating its Golden Jubilee thisyear, an important milestone of gloriously completing 50 years. It is a remarkable occasion that calls upon us all to appreciate and rejoice at the sublime deeds done by our predecessors in building the organisation to its present stature. It is also an occasion that calls for a celebration of the present, and work towards inspiring the future. I am fortunate to serve this association in this milestone year and I hope we can continue the legacy of our predecessors and ensure that IADVL scales further heights.
IADVL EC has chalked out several initiatives and innovative programmes for this year, and to execute this, I invite the active participation and involvement of all members and sister societies.
