2022 Leadership Update: Bay Area Prabasi
We are very excited to announce that we have 3 new members who have joined the Prabasi board of directors for the term 2022-2025.
The applicants were thoroughly vetted by the Election Commission and indeed are prized additions to the board of directors.
Since the number of applicants was less than the number of openings, no ballot elections were required and the qualified applicants joined the board elected by acclamation.
The 3 new board members are
Dr. Jayashree Ray, Ms.Urmi Chakraborty, and Mr. Anjan Das.
Along with that, we also wanted to share that our chairman, Mr. Sudipto Mukhopadhyay, and treasurer, Ms. Samita Sen have completed their term of office and the board has elected
Ms. Bitan Nandi Biswas as the new Chairperson,
Mr. Manas Chaudhuri as the new Secretary,
Mr. Saikat Paul is the new Treasurer of Bay Area Prabasi

The board of directors sincerely thank both Mr. Sudipto Mukhopadhyay and Ms. Samita Sen for their invaluable contribution and leadership and Dr. Ranjit Chakravorti and Dr. Subrata Dey for their guidance and mentorship. The board has also appointed the new advisory committee and we will share another update on it shortly.
Below is a note from our new Chairperson addressing the broader community:
“It has been trying times for all of us, however, those challenges presented unique opportunities to grow, learn and refine ourselves. I have been personally reflecting on the immense contributions everyone made in helping me grow, supporting me, and ultimately modeling what a nonprofit community organization should look like, I am so grateful to many of you, particularly to Sudipto and Samita di- for their immense courage and tireless dedication to the organization and I can’t express how much it means to me to be able to continue to navigate Prabasi towards its mission and vision, along with each of you. Together, we can and, we will” – Bitan
