Lexington GIG (Getting Involved Group) Holds Free Seminar


11/22/2017

The Getting Involved Group (GIG) invites you to a free seminar on Saturday, December 2nd from 2:00 PM -4:30 PM, at the Lexington Community Center (39 Marrett Road). The session is intended to educate the Indian American community on why and how to get involved in the activities and governance of the town. It will feature a key note address by Suzie Barry, Chairman- Board of Selectmen, Lexington, MA. All interested persons are welcome to attend this free event. Light refreshments will be available.

About GIG

Indian Americans of Lexington (IAL) and the elected Town Meeting Members collaborated to create GIG. The mission of GIG is to actively reach, educate and encourage other Indian Americans to participate in the governance of the Town of Lexington and its committees.

The reason is simple...

The Indian American community has grown in Lexington and now accounts for ~6% of the population. Our children represent approximately ~12% of the enrollment in the schools. It is therefore our civic responsibility to participate and give back to the community to which we belong. Also, the leaders of our town continue to encourage participation by our community as they attempt to improve diversity of people involved in the public service arena.

Continue the momentum...

In 2015, six Indian Americans successfully ran and were elected as Town Meeting Members (TMM), in 2016, six additional Indian Americans were elected to the town meeting. The continued momentum increased the Indian American TMM count to 13 in 2017. As we enter 2018 it is crucial that we build further sustainability to contribute to the decision making for some key challenges we face in the town be it Capital project or Cultural diversity. Additionally, there are many opportunities for our Indian American community to participate in town committees and contribute her/his skills.

Let us drive towards more Indian American participation in our town!

Please reach out to us at: ialgig.ma@gmail.com if you have any questions:

We look forward to seeing you on December 2nd, 2017.

Thanks

Narain Bhatia, Dr. Dinesh Patel, Sanjay Padaki, Pam Joshi, Ali Rizvi, Ravish Kumar, Anoop Garg, Hema Bhatt, Vikas Kinger, Rita Pandey, Anil Ahuja, Vineeta Kumar, Aneesha Karody
