Proposal for the creation of Sections
Each Committee with more than
20 members will become a Section. A section would then have the administrative
structure of Section President, Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer to fully
devote time for the section activities.
Currently we propose 5 such
sections. They are:
Section on Women
Future Focus Section
Goals of Development Section
- Create projects for
developmental activities in USA, Canada and Orissa
- The developmental
activities in USA/Canada include activities such as Archives creation,
membership growth and outreach activities

in Orissa would include grassroot developmental activities and educational
development activities. Some examples are creating OSA scholarships in
schools, building a school library, building a public library, organizing
educational seminars, health seminars, creating income resources, securing
funds for disaster relief etc.

This would include planning

festival, Oriya dance festival and Oriya drama festival.
