A function was organized to welcome the new members of AACEG who have joined the Association this year on 21st April 2018. This is the first time such a function has been organized and the response was very encouraging. About fifty new members, mostly belonging to 2017 graduating batch attended the function. The total attendance was about sixty. It is gratifying to note that the new members were receiving E NEWS regularly thanks to efficient functioning of bulk E Mail dispatch. The function was arranged to acquaint the new members about the activities of AACEG and to obtain their feedback. There was a good interaction between the participants resulting in beneficial exchange of ideas.
