The 17th Annual General Meeting for the year 2075 of Society of Hydrologists and Meteorologists (SOHAM-Nepal) has taken place on the day of 13 Ashad, 2076 at the hall of Tourism Board, Pradarshani Marg, Kathmandu. The major agenda of the AGM was for the revival of SOHAM for its legal status which was pending in the Social Welfare Council since a year ago. The renewal of Society for the fiscal year 2074/75 was obstructed due to issue raised on one of the project held by the Society namely “Mountain Evo”. The society entertained the activities of the project without prior permission of the council and has continued receiving further funding from foreign donor despite the warning of the council afterward. Since the society is awaiting for the decision of the council and it is in the end of fiscal year 2074/75, the executive committee held on 28 Jestha 2076 decided to present the issue on AGM and get the direction to revive the society from this situation. The proposed annual report along with audit report for the FY 2074/75 was passed by the AGM which would be necessary for the renewal of society from CDO office, Kathmandu as a part.
The recruitment of Auditor for the FY 2075/76 was also concluded and Mr. Ramod Acharya has been nominated with remuneration of NRs. 20,000 for the upcoming fiscal year as the Auditor for the society. The discussion was also made on the purchase of land by SOHAM-Nepal and the source used for the purchase. However, it was decided not to raise at the moment in the crucial stage of existence of the society itself. The miscellaneous concerns such as utilization of land, code of conduct for member of society and involvement in income generation activity for the society were also raised but all the concerns were postponed until next AGM till renewal of the Society.
