Message from Regional President

Dear Members,

It is a special honor and privilege to begin my term as president of the South India Council (SIC) of IACC. Our outgoing president, Mr. Raju, deserves an enormous thank you from all of us for guiding the SIC chapter of IACC so ably. He has been a terrific President and was available all the time. I always appreciate the deep commitment shown by my predecessors and I shall continue to rely on the seniors’ wise counsel in further shaping the India-USA trade relations during my term.

I hold a special place for IACC in my heart.  Being elected SIC president unanimously is thus a special honor for me especially during the 50th year celebrations of IACC, and I will do my best to serve you, our members, during my term.  In preparation for my presidency, the past year has included my participation in all EC meetings and many of SIC and Branch committee meetings. This has provided me with a chance to learn first-hand about many of the important activities in which IACC is currently involved. Thanks to the work of all of our committees, under the guidance and leadership of our National outgoing President Mr. N. V. Srinivasan and outstanding staff, IACC is in very good shape.

As we all know Mr. Vasant Subramanyan has taken over as the New President for the 50th year of IACC.  Those of us who know Vasant will be delighted that the Chamber will be looked after by a person of great professional inspiration.  I hope we can all work together to support the incoming president and help him be successful.

Just because the IACC is doing well doesn’t mean that we can’t do even better. As mentioned in my first SIC meeting as SIC President, one of my top goals for the coming year is to strengthen our secretariats.  My main role is to coordinate all 4 branches of SIC. Real execution has to come from branch Chairmen and Secretariats of each branch.  We also have to address the needs of our members.  So, why should you be an IACC member and support this Chamber? IACC is devoted to promoting the bilateral trade between India and the United States. This means using all of our resources at all levels, to provide venues for our members to share their findings— whether in person, print or online— and to establish important contacts to facilitate the trade. That automatically increases the membership.

It is a historic year for IACC. Indo American Chamber of Commerce turns 50-and we are celebrating the history, achievements, leadership, and influence surrounding IACC and its members, and be inspired for the next 50 years!

I will keep you posted on our progress and would love to hear any innovative ideas from you.  I thank you for your continued support, and please don’t hesitate to let me know what you think will make us even better.

Sincerely Yours,
Purnachandra Rao Surapaneni
