North American Telugu Association (NATA) celebrated the success of its mega convention with a lavish “Volunteer Appreciation Dinner” at Atlanta’s Taste of India banquet hall in Alpharetta on August 9, 2014. Over the last 2 years, scores of volunteers invested their time and energy to mobilize forces and contributed enormously to the success of one of the biggest conventions in the history of Telugu associations in the USA. This evening was the moment for celebrating the results that came out of that sincere work over those long months.

NATA President Dr. Sanjeeva Reddy, Convener Bala Indurti, Coordinator Srini Vangimalla, Co-convener Dr. T.Satyanarayana Reddy, core committee members Gautham Goli, Ramesh Chapparala, Vijaya Appareddy, RVP Ravi Kandimalla, Joint Secretary Dr. Sridhar Korsapati, BOD Bharath Madadi, Corporate Grand Sponsor Paramount Software CEO Pramod Sajja, local leaders like Narendar Reddy and many other VIPs were present and guided the proceedings. They expressed their gratitude to the 45 convention committees and hundreds of volunteers and vendor partners for all the work in executing an event of this size—no ordinary task. Their grit and abundant talent were showcased in this convention to the whole world.

Convener Bala Indurti and emcee Venkat Chennubhotla kept the evening alive with spontaneous wit and humor. NATA Advisory Council Dr. Prem Reddy and Dr. Malla Reddy sent messages expressing their gratitude and appreciation for all committees’ volunteers and Atlanta Telugu community for making NATA second convention a huge success with record attendance and an outstanding array of programs and great food.

Sincere appreciation was extended to ByteGraph Prashant for excellent audio visuals and production of the convention. NATA thanked the Co-hosts GATA and TAMA for their support and media partners for their coverage of the Convention and related preceding events, and for providing publicity: TV5, TV9, Mana TV, YUPP TV, 6TV, 10TV, TV Asia, ZEE Telugu, Great Andhra, Eenadu, Sakshi, Andhra Jyothy as well as local print media.

The merry crowd of over 400 volunteers and their families sipped in the delight of the evening with a delicious dinner and a friendly supportive team atmosphere, knowing that the convention will remain a cherished memory for the millions of magical moments that it produced.
