On June 9, 2006 Hinduism Today reported, "Over 40 temples have registered so far for the upcoming Hindu Mandir Executives' Conference scheduled for June 23 to 25 here in Atlanta. More than 70 temple executives are enrolled from temples in 20 states, Canada and the Caribbean. According to the invitation on their website, [mandirsangam.vhp-america.org], '2006 Hindu Mandir Executives' Conference (HMEC) is an annual initiative seeking development of network between the executives of all Hindu mandirs of America. You, as a mandir executive, are the natural leader of Hindu society by virtue of your intense motivation, deep experience, and selfless service. You understand Hindu-American needs and challenges. At HMEC-2006 you will deliberate on ways of ensuring the sustenance of Hindu Dharma in N. America. A key component to this deliberation would be to explore ways of anchoring Hindu Dharma's sanaatan values in the hearts of coming generations and roles which mandirs can play to make that happen.'"
