“We believe these are important issues that need to be discussed. Many families are coping with these challenges and our goal is to provide them with the tools to overcome them” Dhiren Amin, president of the IBA said.

A special highlight of the program will be the IBA unveiling a new sub-chapter, the Young Entrepreneurial Society

YES is comprised of individuals aged 21 through 25. The new sub-chapter will be dedicated to career development and providing networking opportunities for the large and growing South Asian American youth in New Jersey.

“We felt there was a need to mobilize the next generation within our community. We want to give them the tools to succeed and in turn contribute back to the community” Neil Shah, the organizations Chairman said.

The Executive Board of YES will be introduced and its logo unveiled.

YES will feature panel speakers from YES who will give a first-hand account of the challenges faced by peers.

The seminar will include two other panels. They first will include representatives from government, the second will include legal and healthcare experts.

Featured speakers will include Sgt. Dudash from the Edison Police Department, Daniel Harris from the Woodbridge Township Board of Education, and State Senator Joseph Vitale, who chairs the Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens committee.
