Dr. Sanjib Kumar Borkakoti, President of SSS conducted the meeting. Mridu Moucham Bora, secretary of SSS presented annual reports and accounts, which were accepted.

The AGM elected a new committee for the period 2022-2025. Dr Sanjib Kumar Borkakoti and Mridu Moucham Bora were re-elected as President and Secretary.

Dr. Madhuchanda Chaliha Bhuyan, Amitabh Bora, Pradip Hazarika, Indranil Gayan, Dr. Buljit Buragohain, and Nilamani Bora were elected Vice President and co-ordinator cum treasurer, media in-charge of the society, and assistant treasurer. Prominent businessman Joon Rajkhowa also attended the meeting.

In a resolution, the Society expressed dismay at the maladministration of Namghars in urban areas, calling for their rejuvenation. Urban Namghariyas need to be more active in generating interest in Sankari culture. The Committee decided that they would organize a workshop in July on the use of Brajawali as it is very important for Sankari Culture. The Committee also decided to set up a weaving unit in its Aharya production center. It may be mentioned that the Society has trained many youths in Aharya production and also runs its own production unit.
