Why become a Life Member
Dear friends from the Class of 2012,
Let me begin first by expressing how delighted we are at the prospect of welcoming you all at IIT Bombay for your Decennial Reunion. It proves to us what we have been trying to tell others for so long; ‐ you dont have wait till you are middle aged when broad mind and narrow waist has started exchanging places, before you return to the Institute for a reunion :‐)
Some of you are already life members of IITBAA. But many are not. Some of you might even have made a mental note to become a lifemember but never got round to it. Becoming a lifemember is easy, inexpensive and feels good in the end. Here are few reasons why you should become lifemember before your reunion this December.
