Chairman Message

Niranjan Neil Patel

I am happy to report that 2015 has been very successful so far for us at FIA Ohio—and our community as a whole.

We focused on providing new services to our ever-growing family, celebrating our heritage, and opening up ourselves and our traditions to the greater Ohio community.

We started the year with a special celebration of the 69th Republic Day. And in the spirit of international cooperation, we commemorated the event with a flag hoisting at the Statehouse, which is the seat of government for the State of Ohio.

We had a lovely gathering for this momentous occasion. After rejoicing in this almost seventy-year-old tradition, we focused on creating what I believe will become new traditions.

Thank you

Niranjan (Neil) Patel

It is with great pleasure and humility that I assume the 2016 – 2017 presidency of our wonderful organization. I have been committee member at FIA for last few years. Throughout the years of participation in the Committee, I have created new and innovative programs that provide ongoing support for both; the FIA committee and the Indian community at large.
From the inception of this organization each of the Presidents of FIA, has been entrusted with creating a vision for the organization. 
For my tenure as president, I would like to outline my vision for FIA –
  1. Improve the operational efficiency of FIA by engaging with and building long lasting relationships with various cultural organizations in Central Ohio.
  2. Create an umbrella for people from all over India to network and connect in Central Ohio. Provide services and support to the Indian community in Ohio and be the go-to organization for community members. 
  3. Garner recognition and support from the The State Of Ohio.

We have a great team of individuals and a lot of exciting events planned for the upcoming year. I am eager to bring you a variety of events and opportunities for community participation. I hope you are all looking forward to this year and everything that we have planned. I would like to thank the board members to electing for the president. Also would extend my thank you to Trustees and committee for giving me the opportunity to be of service to this esteemed organization.  

Thank You, 
Urvish Shelat
