      Dear Sunanda, As per the last two emails we had sent to all the attendees, April 13th is ONLY a placeholder date because it's not possible to setup an event without a date. The actual date and venue will be announced shortly.

    Ganesh, is this definitely being held this time? (Or am I doing something wrong to sign in?) The last time (March 30), when I logged in at the scheduled time, I got a message that the event had been cancelled.

      Hi Nandita, The final date is NOT April 13th. We will announce it once its finalized. We had sent the following email (on April 3rd) in that regard to all members of the group interested in attending the session.

      Mail on April 3rd---------------------­-------------------Dear All, We have got terrific response to the first session of the BDDSA career program. The start date of the program is not finalized due to logistical issues, speaker date alignments and corporate partners content review. Pls IGNORE the start date of APRIL 13th (mentioned in the event calendar) - it's a placeholder date and a mandatory input for all meetup events.

      We will come back to all of you shortly with the final start date.

      Best, LeapCourse team
