SME-IIT(ISM) Get Together

June 20, 2020 0 comments ISMAANA Admin Categories Patrika Q2 2020

As with usual tradition, the alumni attending the SME (Society of Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration) conference met at Indian Delhi Palace in Phoenix, AZ. This year the event was hosted by our beloved alumni Rohini Sharma (1967, Mining). He is also based in the Phoenix area. We are doing these get-togethers since 2008 (the first social event was in Salt Lake City), so this was our 12th social event in continuation.

Rohini sir welcomed everyone. Along with Rohini sir (SME Legion of honor member), two other senior-most alumni Dr. Madan Singh (1956, Mining) and Dr. Ramani (1962, Mining and SME Past President) shared their experiences. The event followed by a formal introduction in the ISM way. Vishal apprised the alumni of various efforts for scholarships and other activities taken up by the ISM alumni association of North America. This year was special as few guests (the better half of Dr. Ramani and Dr. Singh, and Amit Jain’s colleague from Derrick Corp) also joined the event

It was indeed a joyous occasion, and everyone enjoyed the social get-together. It’s just once a year that we all get-together during SME meeting, alumni come from different states and sometimes even travel as far from India to attend this conference and making this evening more special. With this, I would like to thank alumni to take some time out to celebrate ISMite get-together to cherish the glorious days of IIT(ISM) during the SME meeting.
