Hope all of you are getting excited about our Silver Jubilee Event, and waiting to come back together to our beloved campus after 25 years! We are exactly 11 months away from our big day. As informed earlier, our get-together will be from Aug 5th?2016 thru Aug 7th2016.? We are expecting about 200 batch mates to come for the weekend. Let?s make it a grand event!

There has been a lot of activities that happened in the last few months towards the arrangements for the program. This email is to give you a status of what has been done so far and what to expect in the coming months. More updates will be sent in the coming weeks and months.

  • Event Name and Tagline selection
    • We have selected a name and tagline for the event. This was selected from entries from our batch mates thru the various WhatsApp groups.
RECall ?91?It?s Yesterday Once More!

 

  • Event Logo
    • We need an official logo for the event. We will be collecting entries for the logo until Sept 30th.If you know of anybody in our batch (or kids) with artistic skills, please encourage them to submit an entry. We will put the entries for a vote and will select the final logo.
  • Website
    • We launched our official website for the event. Please visit our cyber home at?http://www.crec91.com/.?While you are there, remember to register for an account online because some of the features will work only if you login.
    • If you have any issues with the website or if you have any feedback or suggestions, please email?recall91@crec91.com
    • The website design is sponsored by Calpine Solutions (Thanks to Jijo John)
  • Finance & Bank Account
    • For an event of this size, there will be a lot of expenses and we have to track all expenses properly. An initial estimate of the expenses is being worked out and will be published shortly. We will be able to arrive at a final figure only sometime next year as we confirm the number of attendees and the detailed item expenses.
    • A bank account has been established in Calicut to manage all financial transactions
    • We will need to collect an initial deposit from all confirmed attendees which will help with any initial expenses. This will also help the committee to gauge the number of attendees and will assist in negotiating hotel rates. Details for the initial payments with bank details will be sent in a separate email shortly.
  • Registration
    • This is one area where we need everybody?s help. We have been reaching out to all our friends through emails, Facebook, WhatsApp groups, phone calls etc. We still have only about 54% response so far from all the branches together
    • We need everybody to respond to our survey on google form?http://goo.gl/ZFIJ0Q. If you know of anybody who has not responded to this, please reach out to them and ask them to respond.
