President’s message

TAGS was formed with the goal of imbibing great pride and traditions of our culture in the younger generation as well as reliving our traditional values and culture from our homeland. I strive to further this goal with utmost integrity along with my fellow Board members. Together, we join hands to achieve TAGS’ Objectives and set new goals and vision for the current Board’s two-year tenure.

TAGS is a community-driven organization. Every TAGS member/individual supports and helps to strengthen TAGS. We surely need a lot of volunteers and the continued support and participation of all Telugu folks in the Greater Sacramento area. Let us pool all our energies to achieve all the objectives, new goals, and vision. Looking forward to all the great work we plan to achieve in the next two years.  I count on each and every one of you in making this happen.

I conclude my message by saying, serving the community by itself is an honor, serving as a President of well managed and operational non-profit organization like TAGS is even a great honor and a big responsibility. I sincerely thank everyone for putting your trust in me and electing me as President of TAGS to serve the community. I am very much confident we will meet and exceed the expectations of TAGS members with the amazing TAGS team we have.
