After the Company presentations , members were introduced to Voices for Innovation www.voicesforinnovation.org
Mr Sanjay of MAIA, Mumbai was introduced to members as a new Board Member who would take care of the content of the meeting. The members were informed about various tasks which were needed to be done like:
- getting association formed and Bank accounts opened
- manage monthly meetings
- manage finances once association is registered
- drive membership in Mumbai.
- manage meetings in Pune, Gujarat & other regions
For these tasks , Board recruitment would be done so that each Board member could take a specific responsibility.
Next came the Topic of the Day "Discussion on Partnering" . Here the thrust was on what members should do before they partner. What kind of questions need to be answered were discussed. Rahul from Leon Computers , Pune said he has worked out a few answers which he can share with other members . Chetan from Xpress Computers , Mumbai also mentioned that he has been doing partnering without any disputes . Sanjay from MAIA , Mumbai shared the kind of relationships he has with other partners .
