Convention Registration is open at www.RANAConvention.com Happy to report that we have in excess of 70 families already registered for the convention. Our goal is to have 100 registrations prior to the end of August. This would be significantly more then the total registrations in the last convention and perhaps it will be the largest convention ever!
RANA’s first President, Narendra Singh Khichi will open the Convention with a Bhajan. India Minister of External Affairs, General VK Singh will be our speaker during the opening session. Raghunandan Singh will be the opening session MC. After several years, several of the founders of RANA will be present.
Agenda is beginning to take shape. Renukaji and the Cultural Committee has started meeting regularly and have started communicating with Chapter leaders to identify members that will perform.
We are adding an additional session “SAMVAAD” (session cleverly named by Naivedya Sengar) on Thursday that will be an extension of the business conference. SAMVAAD, Conversation, Interlocution, News Information, Message and Dialogue. This wonderful session will be an extension of the Business Conference. Mahavirsinh and Priya Chudasama will be speaking about Finance, Sumit and Stephanie Singh will be speaking regarding their wonderful undertaking www.PediaManor.org. We have many others we are in the process of discussing topics.
We will have a version of the Shark Tank that was such a huge hit at the Youth Convention. We will give 3 prizes of $3K, $2K and $1K. This was brainstormed by Young adults at the Youth Convention. Therefore they will organize it and design this awesome session.
Health Care panel discussion for Breast Cancer and Heart Disease. Speakers include Dr. Deepak Singh, Dr. Shailendra (Sunny) Singh (son of founders KN Singh and ShivRaj Kumari Singh). Dr. Priya Jadeja (Daughter in law of past NEC President Janaksinh Jadeja)
