Panditji leaving IACCT
It is with regret we inform you that Panditji has decided to leave IACCT for personal reasons, sometimes in early 2015. At this point, we have not been informed where Panditji will be going after he leaves IACCT. It is our understanding that Panditji is still contemplating his future plans to follow his dream. We will communicate whenever Panditji shares his finalized plans with us. On behalf of the temple and community members, we offer our very best of wishes for his success in whatever he chooses in pursuit of his career aspirations.Panditji has been serving IACCT and local community for almost ten years. During this period his performance has been very good; IACCT Board has gratefully acknowledged his contributions as documented in several Annual General Body minutes. He and his family have established great rapport with the temple community members and we will surely miss Panditji and his family. We will keep you informed regarding definitive timetable for his departure and possible farewell party arrangements to honor him in recognition of his services.
