Jaipur based Rajasthan Computer Traders Association (RCTA) will set the ball rolling for its election, which is expected to be held this month. The electoral process will be finalized in the next general body meet (GBM), which is scheduled for April 6, 2013.
At the GBM, the association will announce a three members election committee. Post the formation of the committee, the election date will be announced immediately.
Kailash Gupta, president, RCTA said, "We have already circulated a formal mailer to our entire members about our GBM. The current team will announce the synopsis of our achievements of last 2 years and balance sheet before the house, followed by the formation of election committee. The house will appoint a neutral person, from our advisory council, which will consist past presidents and IT veterans. The same member will further appoint two more members and complete the committee."
"The role of the committee will be to decide upon the nomination and election dates. It will also decide on who can contest for this year's election and who can not. Based on their issued guidelines, we will hold our election within the next 15 days," Gupta informed.
When asked about his plan to re-contest, he replied, "I don't have any plans to re-contest, I would give chance to my fellow members to come forward and take over the charge for next 2 years." Under Gupta's leadership, the association improved its communication mode not only within in the association, but with other neighboring IT associations as well.
Gupta reminisces, "When I took over the baton from the last body 2 years ago, RCTA was not organized and its inter-communication was not in shape. Under my tenure, we provided multiple communication mode to members to communicate and escalate the issue with the executive body, be it social media, website or group emailing."
