President Message


Dear member of MCIA,


 First  of all, I would to take this opportunity, on  behalf  of the MCIA  Executive Committee 2017, to wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! 

  I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve as President of this community for 2017. I also consider myself fortunate to have such a committed, responsible and serving team of members who have come forward to join me in this journey as the Executive Committee.

I would like to thank the Executive Committee members of 2016 for their service to the community. Also, My sincere thanks to all the past presidents and their committees for their commitment, dedication and volunteerism in serving our community.

As we embark into the New Year, we plan to continue the strong tradition of MCIA events and activities that we have built over the years. We also want to take some strategic steps, which positions MCIA strongly for the future. Our goal as a team is to provide a memorable experience in each of the events for our members and the larger community. We will be working hard to provide the best for the community as a whole. We cannot achieve any of this without the active participation of our member volunteers during each event. So, we would like to invite and encourage you all members to come forward and participate in all capacities including leadership in various events.

Our young generation is our future. We will put a special emphasis on nurturing their capabilities and creativeness by having a deeper involvement of our youth committee. Our young generation is always welcome to join us as volunteers in various activities

In our ongoing effort to strengthen our organization encouraging you all to take this opportunity and join as a membership to strengthen this organization, we will be paying special attention to keeping our member database up to date with current information updated at every event.

We will continue to build strong relationships with other Indian organizations and local Bloomington and Normal charity organizations to collaborate and enrich the greater community experience for our members.

For 2017, We (MCIA Team) are with you to help and support by 24/7 through our help desk for families of the victims in our community from any catastrophic incidents.

A key ingredient to the success of any organization is a sense of togetherness. Please remember that this is OUR ORGANIZATION.  You, me & every one of us who are a part of MCIA have to continue to put in efforts to make this a better place for our next generation.  Together we are strong… “Our community, our MCIA!”

I am looking forward to see you at the next grand event of MCIA, coming up on this 28th January for our India Republic Day. Please come and celebrate with your families and friends to welcome the new year!!

Once again thanks to all for accepting me as your President 2017.

God Bless America and Jaihind.


Best regards
