We are taking a break to re-build the infrastructure

There has been excitement across the chapters over the past few months. However, we found that we can do better with a physical infrastructure in place. To make that happen, we are taking a break from the on-ground activities. The discussion forum on Linkedin will still be active.

Hope to come back soon with a bang!!! Keep watching this space.
