Inviting Self-nomination from US Born or Raised Adults for Board Position

Please forward this e-mail and encourage your adult children to file self-nomination.

A religious service organization like JCNC, needs to have all segments of the community participating in its activities. One segment of our community that is not proportionately active in our organization is NextGen (those born and/or raised here). It is this group whose children are the heirs to our legacy. They all need to see the Bhawan as their place of spiritual growth and community.

That is why, JCNC Board has decided to add three (3) representatives from the US Born and/or Raised Young Adults as non-voting members of the Board. We believe it will give us an unique opportunity to hear their vision of the future and how they want to impart our religious culture to their children. This will be a great opportunity for both the NexGen and BOD to learn and build future aspirations together,


We urge you to seriously consider this opportunity and participate in the workings of JCNC Board. If you are between the age of 25 and 55 years old and born or raised (at least from age 13) in the USA, please self-nominate yourself for a JCNC Board as a non-voting member in one of the three categories:


1 (one) BOD Position in age group 25 to 34

1 (one) BOD Position in age group 35 to 44

1 (one) BOD Position in age group 45 to 55


We believe your life experiences in the USA will provide us a key insight in serving our complete community in most progressive ways and help you and your children rooted in our religion and culture. Please note that if you are not a member of JCNC in your own name, you will need to become a member before being accepted to the position.


Please send an email application to Jyoti Vora, BOD Secretary at bodsecretary@... with following information:


a)      Full Name and Address

b)      Email and Mobile number

c)      Date and place of Birth, If not born in the USA, age at which you entered the USA.

d)      Identify age-group

e)      Membership status – Life Member. Annual Member, Family Member, or future member.

f)       Statement in max 300 words  


Last date for submitting self-nomination is March 12, 2021.
