Happy New Year to all! At the onset I would like to extend my hearty Congratulations to my team members in executive committee and the Editorial board for starting such wonderful AIAMSWP Newsletter.
The association has grown at great extent in last 10 years. But we were not having any platform to share the activities with the various stake holders. Now with the efforts of all team members that have made it possible to start this newsletter to share the activities of the association with the members. It will boost the growth of the organization and help us to reach to the unreached areas and institution. The documentation of the activities in the form of newsletter will be great resource for future references.
I hope that every one who is having affinity with the association will contribute to make the newsletter more effective way of communication. With warm wishes!
