Board Of Directors
The Board of Directors (BOD) serves as the governing body of Deccan Alumni Association of North America (DAANA). The BOD consists of alumni of Deccan College of Medical Sciences (DCMS), nominated and carefully selected by peers based on their credentials. The BOD is comprised of a President, Secretary, Treasurer and Officers.
The BOD coordinates activities of the various committees, helps organize reunions, cultural and educational (CME) events as well as supervises all philanthropic activities. The BOD also serves as a liaison between alumni and DCMS administration.
There are 11-15 members on the BOD at any given time. In the interest of diversity and inclusion, only two members from each batch are allowed on the BOD at any given time. The members serve a term of 2-4 years.
The first BOD was confirmed at the inaugural DAANA Reunion in Dallas, TX in August 2016.
