                 Dear Friends / BMCAA Directors,

                 As all of you were leaders of BMCAA Cleveland Convention 2003, I would like to thank you for your

                 Direct/Indirect contribution to make this Convention one of the most successful BMCAA Convention. I appreciate

                 all your sincere efforts.

                 I am happy to inform you that after having such a wonderful convention with highest attendees of BMCAA

                 conventions and our Association have generated approx $ 40,000.00 profit. The theme of success of this

                 convention was lowest cost to alumni & family, which has brought highest satisfaction rating for this convention.

                 After careful thinking I have come to the conclusion that I request you all or one of you to write the convention

                 report as you please. As a well-balanced BMCAA Cleveland Convention 2003 report will be helpful to the future

                 of BMCAA - USA, future activities of BMCAA and conventions of BMCAA-USA.

                 As you all know the best part of the convention was record attendance and highest satisfaction with Hotel

                 Sheraton, Delicious Indian Food, Aqua Massage, Shoe polish, Manicure, Beautician Services, 24 hrs continuous

                 Food Counter, Limousine Services, Live Music and Bollywood Entertainment, Ras Garba Event, Cruise with

                 Hawaiian Dance, Gala Dinner, CME1, Fashion Show and many more services.

                 The generous Donations of approx $ 10,00,000.00 by BMCAA ALUMNI to HolyCare Project was one of the

                 milestone of BMCAA Cleveland Convention's success. For this success I congratulate all the executive committee

                 members and they should be proud of this achievement.

                 I appreciate Cleveland convention committee member's help to make this event a Grand Success.
