This year unlike earlier years there was no need for election of new Board as the last year board’s tenure was appointed for two years, which expires at the end of the year 2014. However Dipak Gurung Cultural co-coordinator have tendered his resignation due to his other commitments coming up in the new year, Therefore as recommended by the Youth Club Sapana Timsina was appointed as Cultural Coordinator.
