Following landmark attendance of Compass members in its annual AGM on September 26, Pradeep Biyani of Suntronics has been chosen to lead the association for this term taking over the leadership as the president.
The association, this time opted to go ‘green' using new media and mailers as the preferred mode of both communication as well as noting down the activities and the decisions taken in the meeting.
"This year, we had opted to communicate members about the election as well as the AGM using the electronic media and also put up videos on YouTube. Videos were launched on YouTube for the campaigns and Hemant Chabria of Chabria Infotech is the man behind this key initiative", said Pradeep Biyani, president, Compass.
In the AGM, 15 members have been shotlisted for the Executive Committee and the remaining portfolios.
"We will be holding another meeting in about 10 days time to finalise the Executive Committee and fill up the remaining portfolios", Biyani said.
Unique to this year, Compass, using the new media had clearly laid down the election campaign videos and the manifestos whereby Biyani had jotted down his goals for Compass in capacity of the president.
According to the video and in the words of Biyani, 6 concerns has been highlighted.
"In the first place, my focus will be to ensure a healthy channel-vendor relationship and strengthen the legal and statutory advisory for the association. Many channel partners do not have access to expert legal advice or opinion and we are planning to remove this anomaly", Biyani said.
Biyani is planning to facilitate members of Compass with access to legal advice but this is subject to acceptance from members in the next Executive Committee meeting.
Further, in the AGM, Compass has decided to put into effect an Advisory Board of past-presidents to help the Executive Committee in various capacities.
