Dr. Babu Stephen, Chairman of IAPC announced here last week at the kick-off meeting held in Atlanta.

“Several national level leaders of different political parties and eminent media persons from India will be attending the event,” he said. “We are expecting a total of 30 to 40 persons from India, 25 of whom have already confirmed. Further discussions are in progress in this regard,” Dr. Stephen said. He welcomed the whole-hearted support of the members of IAPC’s Atlanta chapter to make the Conference a great success.

The Conference will include several workshops and seminars headed by eminent Indian politicians as well as journalists from the print and audio-visual media. “We expect this year’s event will attract more participants than the previous years,” Dr. Stephen said.

Various Committees have been formed under the leadership of accomplished community leaders and other experts for the seamless conduct of the Conference. The committees are chaired by Babu Stephen (Finance), Mini Nair (Entertainment and Food Committees), Ginsmon Zachariah (Award), Sabu Kurian (Medical), George Kottarathil (Competition), Morley J. Nair (Publicity & Media), Lukose Tharian (Transportation), Jomy George (Reception & Registration and Youth Committess), Vineetha Nair (Program), Roopsi Narula (Women’s), Prasad Philipose (Stage), Thomas Mathew Joys (Souvenir), and Sunil J. Koozhambala (Educational Award),

IAPC, formed in 2013 with the objective of bringing together the U.S. media-persons of Indian origin, has been conducting annual conferences in different U.S. cities for the last four years. The previous events were attended by eminent Indian personalities from the fields of government, media, and literature. IAPC currently has eight local chapters in US and Canada.

Previous meeting:
IAPC successfully hosted 4 International Media Conferences since its inception in 2014, with the latest one being held at Philadelphia (2017). This year, we decided to expand the scope of the International Media Conference towards community outreach by rewarding $500 each to recognize 50 high school students of Indian origin residing in Atlanta, GA towards academic or non-academic accomplishments. Details of the nomination process and selection criteria will be discussed at the Kickoff Meeting scheduled at the Ashiana Banquet Hall, 5675 Jimmy Carter Blvd, Norcross, GA 30071 at 11:00 am on Saturday, the 11th of August 2018. The meeting will be presided by Dr Babu Stephen, the Chairman of the Indo American Press Club accompanied by IAPC officials of the Atlanta Chapter and participated by select community leaders. Date : 11th August, 2018, Time : 11:00 AM, Venue: Ashiana Banquet Hall, Global Mall, 5675 Jimmy Carter Blvd, Norcross, GA 30071
