GATS 2013 By-Law Amendments Update


Dear GATS Members, வணக்கம்.

Friendly Reminder - To participate in the General body (By law amendment process) please bring your valid Government ID for membership validation.

We would like to thank every one of you who came to vote on the bylaw amendment process on Sunday December 16th. Despite rainy weather substantial number of members came to Lanier High School to vote on the amendments. However, there was not sufficient number of members to meet the quorum for the amendment process. Therefore the bylaw amendment voting is rescheduled as given below:

The final General Body approval process will be conducted in a General Body Meeting scheduled for Febraury 10th, 2013, 2PM - 6PM EST at

Lanier High School
918 Buford Hwy
Sugar Hill, GA 30518

We also take this opportunity to thank all the members who actively participated in the bylaw review process for the past 20 months. We thank all the members who gave inputs via emails, in-person during feedback meetings and open forum meetings to the bylaw review committee.

We are submitting the final version of the documents containing the proposed bylaw amendments for your review and approval. Most of the feed backs and suggestions received from members have been incorporated in this document. All the critical issues raised by members in a petition that we received are also addressed in this document.

A PDF document is available here with "summary of proposed amendments to bylaw" for your quick reference.   This is an important process and will help us to improve the operations of our Sangam. We appeal to all members to come and vote on the amendments.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

The bylaw document containing proposed changes could be accessed from the following link
