We held a public Board meeting for anyone who was interested in joining the Board, just to see how we plan events and make decisions for the TCK Club.

Our first TCK Tuesday was a Show & Tell event where everyone brought an object or photo that related to their TCK identity. We plan to hold more events this year to showcase everyone’s TCK upbringings to connect us all.
