My Dear Respected Global Zarathushti Leaders and Community Members:
Please join me in congratulating my dedicated friend Katayun Kapadia – the newly elected President of the Federation of Zoroastrian Associations of North America (FEZANA). Katayun is a Chartered Accountant (CA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), who has been involved with FEZANA matters in North America since its very inception.
I have had the distinctive privilege of knowing Katayun for over 25-plus years as a dedicated Zarathushti, whose leadership aspires to channel the community in an affirmative direction by focusing on meeting its social, cultural and religious needs. She also has an avid interest in supporting the Mobeds to preserve the sanctity and treasure the integrity of our sacred religion. Furthermore, she is an avid proponent of promoting youth leadership within our community and inspires them to become future leaders.
Since 1979, Katayun’s passion for community service has inspired her to serve on the FEZANA Executive as the Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary; the Board of Trustees of the Zoroastrian Association of Pennsylvania & New Jersey (ZAPANJ) as the President, Treasurer and Secretary; and on the Board of Trustees of the Zoroastrian Association de France as Vice President and Treasurer. Katayun is also one of the founding members of the Zoroastrian Women’s International Network (ZWIN).
Katayun is a highly motivated, conscientious, dedicated, reliable and honorable individual, who is committed to making a difference in our local, national, and global Zarathushti community.
Her vision encompasses innovation and her leadership style endeavors to promote a unified North American and Global Zarathushti community rooted in dignity and respect for all.
I wish her a
SUCCESSION OF SUCCESSFUL SUCCESSES
as our new 2012-14 FEZANA President.
With love, light and appreciation from
Westminster, California, USA
