I hope that all of you enjoyed a happy holiday season and are making plans for your 2016 travel. We welcomed our new Officers for 2016-2017 —President Gloria McCoy from La Jolla, Vice President JoAnn Schwartz and Secretary Sanford Smith from Northern California, and Treasurer Timothy Skeet from Calgary. Congratulations to all our new Officers.
Special thanks to our outgoing President, Michael Sholer, who did an outstanding job for the past two years. Thank you, Michael. A new Country List is enclosed. We added Socotra Island at our December Board Meeting. Socotra is part of Yemen. Our new count is 325.
Reminder: our March and September meetings are in Orange County; June and December in Los Angeles. All meetings are on the 2nd Saturday of the month. We look forward to seeing you at our Sept. 10 International Meeting in Bremen, Germany.
|BARCELONA MEETING POSTPONED: The previously announced TCC International Meeting scheduled for Barcelona Oct. 21-24 has been officially postponed until 2017. The board of directors regrets this decision, but a variety of logistical considerations requires this action. Refunds will be issued to those who have already made reservation payments, and we will continue to keep you informed once we have resolved our issues and established a new date for this much-anticipated gathering. Thank you for your understanding.|
