President's Message


Dear Members,

                                                 I am honored and humbled to serve as president of Chicago Andhra Association  for the year 2022 and thankful to all the Board Of Directors, Trustees, Members and Sponsors for supporting me and our organization.

The Vision, Dedication and Hard work of CAA founders, past leaders and committees made this one of the best Telugu Associations across USA and a cultural symposium for Andhrites in Chicago. It is my privilege to lead such reputed organization.

Last 2 years, world witnessed unparalleled challenges due to the pandemic. CAA has been active more than ever, organizing activities supporting Andhra Diaspora here in Chicago. We quickly adopted to a 100% virtual events mode, keeping our communities' spirit HIGH. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate 2021 executive team for bringing wonderful programs and expanding our digital capabilities through 2020, 21.

While we do see light at the end of the tunnel, extreme caution is still necessary while conducting events. With the best interest of our community in view, I would like to introduce a "Hybrid Model" for events this year. Some events will be conducted in person where it is feasible to follow pandemic guidelines. Others will be online, similar to the previous year. It is going to be an exciting year for all of us!!!

I and my team have many plans, goals for this year. Prominent amongst them is finding opportunities to entice active participation of our youth, born and raised here in USA. I personally feel purpose of organizations like ours remain incomplete if our next generations do not see a value in holding our flags into the future. Please reach out to me or my committee for any input/ideas on this topic.

Our team appreciates your continued support through memberships, sponsorships and participation. Best wishes to team 2022 and looking forward to a wonderful year ahead!

Thank you

Malathi Damaraju
