Important Notice about NCNC Membership

Dear Community Members:
With the advent of the new year 2015, NCNC BOD has started planning for another year full of community activities and fulfilled entertainments. With all of yours great cooperation, we were able to organize so many activities for FREE to our respected NCNC members. We promise you to have even more such programs in the days to come.
In order to keep track of all our members to effectively plan the future activities, we have started to streamline our membership records. We had a significant gain of LIFE MEMBERS and Five Year members in 2014 and we wish to have this trend to continue in 2015 as well. As our annual membership runs from January to December, we encourage all the annual members to renew their membership at the earliest possible. If you plan to live in North Carolina for some time, we encourage you to obtain either the LIFE MEMBERSHIP or Five Year Membership.

For your convenience, the membership application form is available HERE
Please complete the membership form and hand it over to any BOD members at your earliest convenience. If it is more convenient to you, you can even mail the form with your payment to:

108 Marengo Drive
Morrisville, NC 27560
For your information, the current rates for NCNC membership is:
LIFE Member: $150
5 Year Member: $50
Annual Member: $15

Once again, we promise you to bring many programs with special appreciation to only NCNC members and we encourage all of you to obtain the NCNC membership at your earliest convenience.

Season's Greetings!

Dear Community Members:
On behalf of NCNC Board of Directors (BODs), I would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday Season and New Year 2015!
Looking back, year 2014 has been a good year for NCNC community in many fronts. I thank you for your active involvement and your wholehearted support in NCNC activities (Nepali School, Nepali New Year, Adopt-A-Highway, International Festival, Deusi/Bhailo, Dashain Celebration, Teej Celebration, Movies and Shows, Blood Donation etc.)
I am personally grateful to the support and generosity our members have provided to NCNC. NCNC would not have been able to function successfully without direct or indirect support from members like you.
Looking forward, I hope you will be committed to provide NCNC your continuous support in year 2015 and beyond. One of the main action items NCNC has planned for 2015 is campaigning for Community Center Acquisition before the end of 2019.  Formation of “Community Center Acquiring Committee” is underway. The need to own a community center for our community was realized by current as well as former BODs of NCNC. To date, many other communities around the U.S. are working towards this goal. Realizing the importance of having our own community center, current NCNC BOD has made this a priority task for year 2015 and beyond. Having our own community center will provide us greatly needed venue for many events that help us in promoting Nepalese language and culture in the U.S.
Working towards this goal, NCNC has already allocated $5000 as “seed money” from the NCNC account.
Again, I wish you, your family, and friends very happy holiday season and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015.
I am confident that you will actively support to the programs NCNC put forth in the future.

Thakur Karkee, Ph. D.
