How SFVGA Works: (And for those who don't know, it works beautifully!)
At the end of every year at general meeting we elect or nominate seven board members. These board members finalize about 8 to 12 events and the budget for the events for the coming year. The board creates committees of members for these events. Depending on total no. of members and events there can be 5 to 10 members in each committee. Each SFVGA member family becomes part of at least one committee. The committees are responsible to organize and manage their assigned event. This way every family members gets a chance to host and work along with other committee members for one event and attend and enjoy the remaining events in the year. The board provides help and liaison to each event committee. This is a short and rough description. Please see the BYLAWS for details.
Membership: SFVGA membership is available to anyone who is referred by an existing member. You can be a member any time of the year. Membership is valid for the current calendar year. Please fill out Membership Application and Waiver of Liability Form and mail it to: Mr. Dinesh Mehta 615 Glade Ave, #120.Canoga Park, CA. 91304
Current Members are requested to be active to recruit new members to have their families take full advantage of our culture, food, festivals, friendship and fun that we are enjoying.
2017: SFVGA is looking forward to make 2017 an exciting year. All members are encouraged to take part in all events, help them make successful and enjoy at the same time. Board Members of 2017 are looking forward to communicate with you for any questions and resolve any issues.
