Executive Committee

The Hindu Temple and Cultural Centre is ably managed by an Executive Committee, elected every year by the general body in its annual general meeting.

The Executive Committee tries its best to live up to the expectations of general body and active members of the HTCC. It encourages and promotes constructive ideas and suggestions from the HTCC members and devotees in general.

The Executive Committee also acknowledges assistance, help and hard works by unknown persons and people who work tirelessly behind the scene and want to remain anonymous.

Please find the list of Executive Committees in recent years and a list of past Presidents.
