Endowment Orations

Endowment orations are normally accepted in the names of dear departed members of IMA Kodambakkam branch by their near and dear or in the nameof dear departed family members by Kodambakkam IMA members. The usual deposit to be made is Rs.1,00,000/- (Rupees one lakh only). Such amount is included in the corpus deposits of our branch with nationalised banks. FD interest from this amount is used towards orations once a year in the said name.

Orations are given by stalwarts in the field on current topics or reviews or personal experiences. The Chairpersons introduce the orator and the orator speaks about the person in whom the endowment was created - his contributions to society. Suchooration usually is given for 25 to 30 minutes. It is customary not to ask questions at the end of an oration. The orator is also honored with a citation and a shawl or garland.

A list of orators under each oration is available under historical section (page under construction/......)
