Media Dealers Association (CMDA) is conducting its 19th

consecutive elections on June 18, 2011. “This time, we want

new members to join the association. This is actually why we conduct

elections every year. Our main role as an association is to raise our

voice against anything which is going wrong in the IT industry,”

mentioned Shashikant Satbhai, president, CMDA.

In totality,

there will be 13 positions available during the election process,

comprising the president, VP, joint secretary, public relations

officer and a cashier forming the office bearers. The remaining

positions would consist of 8 executive council members.

At present,

the Pune association has 295 members up its sleeve and this figure is

likely to go up after the election process is completed. “This year

our major focus will be on the technical seminars, as we have to

increase its number. In the past, we have received a good response from

members for the technical and management seminars organized for

them. Currently, we are looking at appointing 12 committee members,

and they will help in electing office bearers during the first

internal meeting. I have been with CMDA for the past 7 years and it

has been a great learning experience for me. Holding the post of

president for the past 1 year was not an easy task but I managed to

sail through the hurdles. I also feel proud that we managed to fight


octroi issue with the help of my members and their cooperation,”

added Satbhai.




his views, Satbhai said that the eligibility required for the post of

president is at least an experience of 2 years in the committee. “We

conduct 22 projects in a year which require a lot of mental strength

and concentration along with hard work. Thus we make sure that we

choose the right candidate for the post of the president. We also

conduct trainings for members every 3 months, free of cost. The

biggest job is to handle the expo in a very diligent manner and make

it a successful affair,”

said Satbhai.
