Memphis Telugu mitrulandariki Namaskaram
Happy New Year and Happy Sankranthi to all on behalf of Telugu Association of Memphis.


First of all, I would like to thank esteemed Telugu community the Memphis area for giving me the opportunity to serve as President of Telugu Association of Memphis (TAM) for the year 2022.

Thanks to all the previous leaders and teams for their altruistic hard work which made this organization one of the oldest, largest and successful Telugu organizations in the USA.

In the last two years, the world is trying to adapt to the new normal brought by Covid-19 pandemic. Even with those challenges, 2021 TAM team did a tremendous job by flawlessly executing all the events during the year and the grand TAM 40th anniversary for our community. We would like to congratulate TAM 2021 executive team for a successful year.

As we are still trying to cope-up with ever-changing Covid-19 challenges, our team is planning for virtual Sankranthi competitions and Sankranthi event in coming weeks. Additionally, we started the selection process of TAM 2022 youth team, and we are happy to inform that we will be accepting all eligible applicants for various positions.

We are positive that the conditions will improve and we will have the opportunity for in person events in near future. With that in mind, we are planning several exciting programs thru out the year, including Ugadi/TAM Fest, Dasara/Bathukamma, Picnic, youth online tutoring, sports events, medical camp, youth fest, music fest, Mahila, and several charity programs. We will continue the TAM Toastmasters club started in 2021 to encourage the communication skills and leadership training in the community.

Our team appreciates your continued support through your memberships and sponsorships to make the events fun and entertaining for the community. Thanks and good luck to all seventeen executive team members and five trustees for joining me in this volunteer journey for the year 2022.
