Posted on: 22/11/2015 (Sunday)
The Annual General Meeting of the Sydney OBA was held last Saturday, the 21st of November 2015, at 6.30 PM, at the Haven Function Center, Liverpool, NSW. At the AGM, the executive committee for 2015/16 was elected. Mr.Muthiah Sivanathan was elected as the President and Mr.Sivakurunathan Srikumar was elected as the Vice President. The Secretary and Treasurer elected were Mr.Sivabalasingam Rishikesan and Mr.Shanmuganathan Ushanth, respectively. 
 
The outgoing President Mr.Gunaratnam Partheepan (2014/15), in his speech, summarized all the activities carried out in 2014/15 starting from Pongal. The past year has been a busy year, full of activities; the first ever celebration of 125 years of Jaffna Hindu in a foreign soil, educational workshop on "கல்வி எங்கள் மூலதனம்" for all the OBAs and OGAs in Sydney, "Aim for Excellence" workshop for school leavers in Jaffna, welfare activities for the rehabilitation of Northern province people, and the Mega Geethavani. There were also a number of sports activities including Kugan cup cricket match between Melbourne and Sydney OBAs. He was proud to declare the year as a very successful year and thanked all the committee members who were behind the success of all these events and the sponsors for their invaluable contribution. He also thanked Mr.VIjay Rajogopal for providing the function centre to host the event and the excellent arrangements at the hall and the delicious dinner.
 
Following his speech, the Secretary Mr.S.Srikumar read out the 2014 AGM minute and the Treasurer Mr.R.Surendran presented the accounting reports for the year 2014/15. Next was the election of the new committee, which went on smoothly. The President elect Mr.M.Sivanathan thanked for selecting him as the President and introduced his committee.
 
Mr.K Shanmugasothy, the first president of Sydney OBA appreciated the excellent efforts of the 2014/15 president and his committee. He, especially, thanked Mr.G.Partheepan for his excellent leadership given to the committee, and for keeping the Hindu community intact with his communication skills. He thanked him for sending regular email notifications of the news and events, not just Jaffna Hindu events but also for updating with cultural and religious events, making panchangam unnecessary. 
 
Also, Shiva Pasupati and Samy Pasupati appreciated Mr.Partheepan and his committee for the excellent year. Mr.Shiva Pasupati made a special note about the 125th year celebration and the mega Geethavani. Mr.Samy Pasupati too thanked for the excellent email communication.
