New Executive Board

Dear Oshwals,

It is time to update the "Halari Visa Oshwals of America and Canada" for the 5th edition. This is an extremely challenging task which requires contacting and collecting updates of Oshwals in North America and Canada. Above all there is a high cost of publishing and time consumed in mailing these directories. Also making hard copies is not environmentally friendly. In order to save the cost of printing and mailing we have decided to go to the electronic version. The updated directory will be emailed to each household listed in the Directory in PDF. It will be entirely up to you whether you want to use the directory electronically or you can print it. This method also allows us to make changes more frequently to keep it current as there is no cost associated with it.

If you have any updates or know of any new family that has arrived but is not listed (at least one family member has to have a linkage to the Halar region of Gujarati State, India), please visit the following web site and complete the Directory form: https://www.oshwal-usa.org/directory/directory-update-form/

If you need any clarification or more information please contact us at the following e-mail addresses:

Satish Shah at "satishshah5@yahoo.com" for changes in the USA
Sunil Shah at "
sunil7087@hotmail.com" for changes in Canada.

At the same time we request all regional representatives in the USA to encourage new families to complete the Directory form on the website.

Satish and Sunil Shah
