 Dear Sir / Madam,

Re: Annual General Meeting 2017

You will be pleased to know that the next Annual General Meeting of The All India Anglo-Indian Association will be held at YMCA, Beach Road, RK Beach, Visakhapatnam,  on Saturday, the 30th  of September, Sunday, the 1st of October, and Monday the 2nd of October (departure). Outstation Delegates are expected to arrive on Friday the 29th  of September and register/check in after lunch. The Notice and Agenda will be sent in due course.

 The Governing Body by its Resolution at its meeting held in Visakhapatnam on 30th April 2017, has unanimously agreed that the formula for determining the number of  Delegates from each Branch for payment of expenses for attending the Annual General Meeting of the Association will be as follows: 

i)          The expenses of One Delegate from each Branch, namely, AC 3-Tier rail fare to and fro including the expenses in respect of board and lodging (dormitory accommodation) will be met by the Association.   (Copy of the train ticket must be submitted for reimbursement – this is required for the purpose of auditing)

 ii)         In case of Branches having more than 100 and up to 300 members,  the expenses of a Second Delegate in respect of Board & Lodging (dormitory accommodation) will be met by the Association. (NO TRAIN FARE). 

iii)        In case of Branches having more than 300 members, the expenses of a third Delegate, namely, AC 3-Tier rail fare to and fro including the expenses in respect of Board and Lodging (dormitory accommodation) will be met by the Association.

iv)        Any expenses of those who fall outside this formula will not be met by the Association.  Such expenses  shall be recov ered from the individual concerned @    Rs 3700/-  for three nights dormitory accommodation (29th September – arrival, 30th September, 1st October, 2nd October – till lunch time), three breakfasts, three     lunches and three dinners, including the Meet and Greet, Beach Party and Delegates’ Ball. Students in school/college - Rs 2,700.
