Sneha Milan: Who is invited? : All eligible bachelors and their parents. Including, those who are not participating in JNF. When: Friday 6:30 to 7:30 PM Where: Holiday Inn Ball Room
Philosophy: For quite some time we have kept the parents and family at a distance for the fear of them being so emotional that they may impede the process. However, everyone agrees that no matter how wonderful a person you may find to marry, the family is also very important. Their attitude towards you, their ability to be wonderful grand parents is key issues in deciding a match. Not only that, but many a times if parents really get to know the inner strength of you they may be great resource to solve some mis communication etc. This is your time to connect with uncles and aunties!
Sneha Milan is designed to allow the eligible boys and their parents to connect with eligible girls and their parents. We invite all the parents - even if their children may not be participating in JNF. We believe, as a community if we knew who is looking for special someone, there is more likelihood that we can help them.
In order to execute the “Milan” we shall ask the parents of a given age boy and girl to start out at specific location. For example the boys age 26-28 and girls age 24- 26 will start out at the specific location. They can introduce each other. After about 15-30 minutes we shall ask the boys and parents of boys to stay in their designated place but the girl and their parents can move about to introduce themselves to others.
Since, our goal is to make an acquaintance, we would request everyone to limit the time they spend with any specific individuals. They may exchange contact information at the Milan to continue the dialogue during the rest of convention and beyond.
We are also asking parents to fill out brief information form that will be used if someone is looking for you later on. Each parent will have a blue or pink sticker with the age listed on it so it would be easy to spot the proper parent you might be looking for.
We sincerely hope that this will facilitate more interaction among the eligible bachelors and their parents.
Any comments, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

My recommendation for eveyone who is serious about looking, you need to be there and invite your parents too. Also tell others you know who have children in marriageable age.
Once you are there be on a mission to meet as many parents and potential matches as you can. Be prepared to give you business card and don't forget to collect from them. Try to send a follow up message as soon as you can.
All the fun and game can wait but our mission should be on the front burner!
This is the networking at it's best and to my knowledge no other group has ever done it!
