The general meeting attended some serious business by adopting its new by-laws to make them more relevant to the wishes of the members of the Association and to allow it a much stronger ‘Business Focus’. The Association also discussed how to expedite the pending construction of an Indian Center in Aruba so that it can share various aspects of Indian culture like Yoga and Vegetarian Food with the entire Aruban community.

Sumptuous Buffet lunch at Tandoor was the perfect backdrop for carrying out a heavy agenda on a Sunday afternoon. The lunch was followed by a Labor Law presentation by Brown law firm.
