How much does it cost to sponsor a table? I did not get that part. Please elaborate.

I will sponsor one ticket for one of the IV members going to this conference from my salary this month end.

Day Conference + Banquet Dinner - $ 75 (Buy the package and save!)

Guys and girls, pitch in. This is a good exposure for our cause, for being in front of five congressmen and talking to them privately during the Banquet. This is definitely quality time worth spending for.

Three core members will be attending this event. Till now two IV members have agreed to sponsor the tables. We need one more IV member to sponsor. It will be a great opportunity for us to meet some lawmakers and Indian americans involved with political activity.

We would also like to urge all IV members in MA, NH and CT areas to try to attend the event. IV core members will also be there to interact with you and discuss. It will be a good opportunity to also organize the local MA chapter.

Default excellent leadership

I am very happy to report from the Indian American Forum event in Cambridge, MA. The core members might send a report about the event, but let me tell you that we have excellent people as leaders of IV.

I am very impressed with our fearless leader WaldenPond. I can say IV is well connected and know the right strings to play to get the music. From now for me it is a question of how soon.

Folks, I request you to take this as an attestation from someone who has seen the leaders in action at the event. Please believe in this group and provide the supported needed in cash or kind.

I am going to send my second contribution now.
