The Forces Come Together!!!!!!!!!!!
The agenda of the meet was to:
¨ Promote brand IMT
¨ Highlight the “super league status-Top 10” given to IMT Ghaziabad by the AIMA Survey
¨ Organize a US chapter meet
¨ Start a Canada Chapter
¨ Initiate the formation of a co-branded Credit card.

¨ Discuss Sponsorships for the All India Alumni Meet of October 14th, 2006

¨ Work on Short Term Projects for students, to be arranged by the Alumni
¨ Organize four Zonal meets
¨ Presentations by the vice presidents of the four zones
¨ Outline the local chapter activities
¨ Define the target for the next two months
The meeting started with Mr.Dhanam who offered insightful inputs to focus the Board’s attention on recommending strategies that would enhance the Alumni committee’s vibrancy and start the US chapter operations on a big functional scale .As a step in this direction it was decided to consolidate a database of the rich pool of Alumni based in the US and consequently to organize regular meets and informal get-togethers. The objective agreed upon by all the members was to make the IMT Alumni community thrive on an unequalled level of volunteer initiative and effort- nationally as well as internationally.
The meeting was also attended by Ms. Shubhi from ICICI Bank, who is a colleague of Mr. Kaushik. She gave a presentation provided the necessary details that are required to formulate the Co-branded Credit Cards. Thus a decision to initiate the process to have the credit card was taken.
Mr.Karwal stressed the need for updating the alumni database and requested the Vice presidents of the four zones (north, south, east and west) to correspond with the appointed batch coordinators on this issue.
All the four VPs made a presentation with a common running theme of organizing more chapter meets in order to bring the alumni closer together for social initiatives, professional development and continuing education.
The issue of increased alumni-student interface was taken up seriously, and the Alumni Mentorship Progamme was prioritized as an important part of the execution plan. Mr.Karwal and Dr.Sahay asked Alcom to get started on the project immediately with the full support of the VPs.
As a continuing initiative of the Alumni engagement, Alcom put forth the request for assistance on getting the students short term projects that would not only add value to the students but would also contribute to the institute’s credibility as a resource and research centre of academic excellence. This request was approved unanimously by the Board and the project will get all the required support to turn it into a success story.
The Annual Alumni Meet that is going to be held on the 14th of October, 2006 in Ghaziabad, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai was also discussed, along with the confirmation that Mr.Jagdeesh Seth would be asked to give a lecture that day. Also, the 5 centres would be connected to each other through video conferencing on the auspicious occasion.
The marketing summit to be held in March-April 2007, was discussed and Mr. Karwal highlighted the importance of this conference and said that it would be an excellent opportunity for IMT to make a statement on a national as well as a global platform about the impact that our alumni have in leadership roles in the area of marketing across all sectors in India and around the world.
The meeting was a success and ended on a high sounding note. The energy in the room was high and everyone walked out feeling more motivated and committed towards the common goal of getting the joint forces under one umbrella- the Super League B-School IMT Ghaziabad.
