BATM President

On behalf of San Francisco Bay Area Tamil Manram (BATM) and Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America (FeTNA), I would like to thank and congratulate the TAP Award Selection Committee for their excellent work in identifying, grading and coordinating this great TAP Award program.

FeTNA is playing very responsible role in fostering Tamil Language and Tamil tradition by conducting Tamil Convention throughout North America at a large scale for 28 years consistently. Starting 2014, FeTNA has realized the importance of identifying, recognizing and connecting the Tamil Pioneers who are the role models of millions of Next generation Tamil Youth.

2015 FeTNA TAP award selection committee has taken this program to next level by recognizing pioneers from three additional important categories: Human rights, Entrepreneurship and Music. Tamil American Pioneer (TAP) is one of a kind program where FeTNA inspires the mind of many young.

Wishing all the best to FeTNA to continue this TAP program in future conventions and introduce more new pioneers to the world.
