NRIVA Mission 20 ONE  !! New Era with New Team !!

I don’t have words to express my sincere thanks to you all.  Whatever I say is not enough, but I will try. 

Chicago Team:

Wonderfully executed the kick-off event. It gives me great pleasure to know that our visiting team of 100+ NRIVA extended family members from all over the US was touched and overwhelmed with Chicago team’s hospitality. The entire 3 day event felt like a family wedding and a real mini-convention. Sat banquet event with 400+ Chicago guests gave them the first opportunity to meet and interact with new leadership team. With Vasavi Matha’s blessings and Slogan from our Chicago Team-  *Athidhi Devobhava* – Team demonstrated the true meaning of our values.  Kudos to each and every Chicago volunteer for making kick-off event a grand success! 

Visitors walked away with awe, confidence and assurance that Chicago is ready to host the 6th global convention.
