AGM of SYMA and new Office bearers for 2011 - 12

1st of May is of importance to many in different ways.  For most it is the May Day synonymous with International Workers' Day, or Labour Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations organised by communists, anarchists, socialists, unionists, and other activist groups.

SYMA utilized it to be a holiday and organized its Annual General Body after giving due notice to all its members.  From a humble beginning to what we are now, we have grown in size and stature without diluting our ideals of a responsible Social Service Organisation.

We were too keen to have all our members present for the annual meeting and has limited success in this endeavour.  It was pleasing to have 5 of our past Presidents attending the meeting.  They were Mr N Pattabhiraman, Mr N
Ganapathi, Mr Vivekanandan, Mr TJ Ramani and Mr R Vijayaraghavan. 

The AGM started with a prayer followed by condolence for all those who were affected by the natural disaster in Japan.  The AGM was chaired by Mr TA Sampathkumar,  our President who dwelt at length on the activities of SYMA. Me, the Secretary presented the Annual report,  It was pleasant to hear many of our members voice their opinion and come with good suggestions.

The following Office bearers were elected for the ensuing year 2011-12
