Promoting TCC Membership

While traveling, TCC members usually encounter other travelers who like to talk about all the places they have visited. Do you ever stop them and ask if they think they have been to 100 countries? They usually have not heard about the Travelers’ Century Club. (If they have, you may be pleasantly surprised to find a fellow member with much in common.) You can then suggest they go to the TCC Web site, look at the List of Countries & Territories, and check off those they have visited. You can point out the flexible way TCC lists the territories. If they have been to 75 or 100 places, they are eligible to become members. This experience is especially meaningful if you are visiting the less-popular destinations. What an easy way to promote and increase membership in TCC! As you know, TCC does not solicit membership, relying on word-of-mouth and articles in publications or on the Web.
