It’s my pleasure to greet you all and convey my heartfelt respect & gratitude to all the Fellows, Senior Members, Members, Associate Members, Members of the Managing Committee of the Chapters, Corporate Members, Academic Institutional Members and student members of CSI who gave me an opportunity to serve as the President of Computer Society of India.
I am honored to serve great CSI as President for the year 2020-21, together with the eminent Executive Committee &Nomination Committee Members. I would like to say thank you to my predecessor Prof. A K Nayak to set a benchmark of large number of activities of the Society and taking it forward and taking the profession to the highest level despite several roadblocks through various legal issues. With your continued support, I feel that we can achieve our vision to be a globally recognized professional body, adding value to our members, the profession and to the larger community of IT professionals.
Backed by experience of 7 years in Chapter Managing Committee, 3 years as Regional Student Coordinator (Region-1) and 7 years of experience as an elected member of National Executive Committee, the target of significant growth in students,professionals & life members seems to be achievable with dynamic support& active cooperation of our ExecCommembers, chapter committees and all of you. I hope by the joint efforts of all the members we will be able to accelerate the rate of growth exponentially in the future days to come.
CSI is having approx. 100,000+ members including student members. The main responsibility of Executive Committee of CSI, Managing Committee of Chapters, SIGs and Student Branch Coordinators is to serve the members by conducting effective & quality conferences, seminars and workshops to fulfill the objective of the society. I shall try my level best for promoting the research activities, collaboration with other professional & research bodies along with the efforts for the exponential growth of membership for the inclusive growth of the society.
I seek the active & kind support of the all Members to make CSI more Dynamic, Vibrant, Productive & Sustainable and help to tread the tough path ahead by enhancing the positive environment in all sphere of activities.
Expansion of CSI membership base is a continousprocess, which will allow us to establish more & more Chapters & Student Branches for the growth of CSI. In January 2020 we hosted the CSI Annual Convention at Bhubaneswar which was a grand success due to the participation of large number of representatives from all Regions and States. I congratulate theorganizers& members ofconvention committee for their tireless effort & significant contribution. The report& photographs of all of these activities are being published in March &April issues of CSI Communication.
I sincerely request all the Office Bearers, Executive Committee Members, CSI officers and staff to kindly continue working with full dedication, responsibility& honesty for CSI.
In the end I will say at this juncture when country is facing acute problem due to COVID -19, let us all come together by forgetting all differences to make Clean, Healthy &Green CSI.
With warm regards,
Ram Krishan Vyas
