Almost a year has passed since we started to advance meaningful and organized interactions on Nepal under the banner of Canada Forum for Nepal (CFFN). In a period of one year, there has been positive change of Himalayan scale in Nepal due to historic and heroic movement of Nepalese People. The country has seen a new interim constitution promulgated and interim parliament established recently with all the political forces as participants. This is extremely encouraging news for us who would like to see a just, peaceful, democratic and prosperous Nepal, a guiding vision of CFFN. We are thankful to people like you who supported CFFN programs throughout the year and, in turn, contributed towards this change in Nepal.
During this course CFFN was formally registered as a not-for-profit organization under Federal government incorporation act in September 2006. As per the provision in the bylaws, and in the context of changes reality in Nepal, we would like to hold the first “Members’ Meeting” to familiarize with the bylaws, and more importantly, to discuss what programs need to be launched to move forward towards achieving the vision of CFFN. Your participation in this meeting and your contributions would remain extremely important in charting the path of CFFN.
You are cordially invited to the meeting irrespective of whether you are a member or not. We understand that it would not be feasible to come to Ottawa for those of you who live far away or for other important reasons. Still we seek your input through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through phone at 613-596-6692, and encourage you to be a member of CFFN.
