Dear GATS Members, Vanakkam.

On behalf of the great organization of ours, I am pleased to announce the General Body Meeting.

Each of your presence, participation and continued support will be very helpful to further motivate our volunteers and help us grow our organization to new heights.

Please mark your calendar with below information.

Date: Sunday Jan 9th, 2022
Time: 4 PM EST
Location: Online 
(URL details will be distributed soon)

Who can attend/participate: Anyone who is an active member 30 days prior to the meeting date, as per our bylaws.


  • Updates from GATS Board and Executive Committee about current events
  • Announcement of Results of Ratifications of EC/Board Resolution(s)
  • Announcement of GATS Elections for electing open positions for 2022 Executive Committee and Board Members

Ratification of EC/Board Resolution(s) – as the Executive Committee and the Board are looking at passing resolutions that have the best interests of you, our volunteers and the Sangam as an organization, we must take account of your input in the form of ratifying/approving such resolutions. We are working to finalize details and will share with you in a subsequent GB Communications.

Conducting GBM via Online – while we have successfully conducted several events & celebrations online since the pandemic has started, this is the first time we are conducting the GBM online.

We have decided this based on recent Pandemic related health advisories  – from local advisories like Atlanta Mayor recently announcing Indoor Mask Mandates to WHO (World Health Organization) Director recommending us cancel or postpone holiday events amid COVID-19 surge.

As a result, we believe that all of us attending the GBM online from the comfort of wherever we are, will ensure safe and maximum participation.

Please note that several volunteers have been working every day for the past few weeks to make this GBM happen. As we work hard to retain your continued trust and support, once again, I thank you all for the opportunity to serve you.

Yours truly,
Swaminathan Annamalai,
President, Greater Atlanta Tamil Sangam
