Dear Member and Supporter,
It is with great pleasure and humility that I assume the position of President of the South Asian Chamber of Commerce at a time when it is celebrating its silver anniversary. Let me take this opportunity to give tribute to its Founding Members, Past Presidents and Chairman and all those who worked tirelessly for nurturing this organization to the pre-eminent position it occupies at present as the first and oldest South Asian Chamber in Houston, Texas.
Over the years, SACC has been filled with countless activities, events, government outreach programs, as well as a steady flow of budding entrepreneurs, all aimed at harnessing relationships between South Asian businessmen and women in the city of Houston. This year will be no different as we continue to help businesses grow and prosper through exposure at SACC’s chai exchange events and connections made at our networking mixers and seminar’s.
We are putting together an ambitious agenda for celebrating our twenty-five years of existence on a grand scale. There is no better time to join our organization as membership in the SACC means unparalleled access to business opportunities, strategic events, thought leadership, and networking.
It is with the generous support from our board members that we hope to achieve unparalleled growth of our chamber in 2018 and the coming years. We are honored to have the privilege to serve you as your South Asian Chamber of Commerce and encourage you to participate as an active member.
