Tilburg International Club president

Yolonda van Riel, Tilburg International Club President

Where are we now

I sit with mixed emotions as I type out my last president’s message for TIC. The privilege of serving on the tic board has greatly enriched my life as an expat. As I reflect on my tenure as president, I am truly grateful for all the amazing people I have met and experiences I have shared with all of you. We had some challenges along the way – from trying to recruit board members, finding new things to offer members and perhaps the biggest challenge of all – learning how to navigate virtually through corona

With each of those challenges, came even bigger rewards. Welcoming new internationals, scoping out different places to hold events, late night meetings with my fellow board members and delivering goodies to everyone’s home during corona times are only a few of the things I will miss from being on the board.

Looking forward

But I am so very excited to announce that Katie Schweitzer will become your new tic president! Katie is currently filling the role of treasurer and has been doing a great job keeping us all under financial control. Katie will make a great president and I look forward to seeing all the new and fresh ideas that she will bring to the club. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Katie yet, check out her bio on the website and be sure to look her up at the next event.

Please join me in wishing Katie all the success in her new tic role. As for me, I hope to see you soon and catch up at an event in my new role as proud tic member. It’s been my absolute pleasure serving as your tic president!

All the best,
