The Event & Entertainment Management Association (EEMA) India has elected its new executive body at its Annual General Meet held on July 28, 2012. Brian Tellis has been re-elected as President of EEMA for the next term.
Atul Nath has been elected the new Executive Vice-President, while Vijay Arora has been elected as Secretary, along with three additional secretaries – Mandeep Singh, Siddharth Ganeriwala, and Tabassum Modi. Rajeev Jain has been elected the Treasurer, while Rajesh Verma is the new General Secretary.
Speaking to exchange4media after the AGM, Brian Tellis, President, EEMA India, said, “I feel privileged to have been given another opportunity to take our agenda forward and also because the general body has unanimously entrusted me with carrying forward our vision.”
The AGM kickstarted the fifth edition of the annual national convention of EEMA, EEMAGINE 2012, in Delhi. The theme for the convention this year is ‘Time for Change’.
Tellis feels that EEMA has to start communicating and engaging with the administration and the government on issues such as taxation, infrastructure, licensing information, and so on.
The second area that Association will be looking at is taking brand EEMA forward by engaging with various upline and downline stakeholders. The third area of concentration will be systems and processes in the industry.
“These are the broad areas we are looking at, besides widening our membership base. Going to various regions and conducting workshops will also be one of the main focus areas. We are also talking about the business of education, because in our business there isn’t much where the institutions prepare people,” Tellis concluded.
