About us

Andariki Namaskaram,

Telugu Association of Florida, Tampa Bay has prospered as a valued regional organization. Thanks to the vision and commitment of our past presidents and the relentless support offered by you, the Telugu community of Tampa Bay.

I, Dr. Raghu Juvvadi along with my Executive Committee team feel honored to lead the Telugu Association of Florida (TAF) for the year 2022-23. I am humbled and look forward to upholding and promoting the rich legacy of our beautiful Telugu language, culture, and art.

Telugu Association of Florida is very fortunate to have your unyielding support which over the years, has continued to build and flourish.  The strength of TAF is its members and our generous sponsors. Without everyone’s support, the TAF you know today would not have scaled such momentous heights of glory and prominence. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our members, volunteers, and sponsors.

Though we had to face many challenges during 2020 due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to persevere and expand our horizons thanks to the enthusiastic participation from the telugu community.

Even an epidemic of the century could not rein in your enthusiasm and I am honored to be serving a community that has proven its strength and commitment persistently throughout such predicaments. Additionally, with your support, we have even been able to aid charities that support the community throughout these turbulent times.

As we watch our lives return to the pre-pandemic times, armed with vaccinations and self-discipline, we at TAF see an opportunity to continue on our journey to reach new heights. Any organization is only as good as its members and their involvement and I am sure we will have your continued support at all times.  I Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity you gave me to serve you.

కుదిరితే పరిగెత్తు, లేకపోతే నడువు…
అదీ చేతకాకపోతే, పాకుతూ పో…
అంతేకానీ, ఒకే చోట అలా కదలకుండా ఉండిపోకు!

శ్రీ శ్రీ

With warm regards,

Dr. Raghu Juvvadi

President, TAF Tampa Bay
