Katie Schweitzer TIC President

Where are we now

Hi Everyone! As you know, I have taken over as President and as one of my new duties, I am writing my first president’s message. I feel a lot of responsibility taking on this leadership role in such a long-standing club, but I also have a lot of enthusiasm about how we can continue to do fun activities together and also ways we can  improve and grow.

So far this year we’ve had some great events, including the Welcome Back Borrel, which was a lot of fun. For the current members, we conducted some club business including voting in the new members of the board, myself included, and then afterward we had snacks and drinks and met some new people as well. We started the “Welcome Back” borrel originally after coming out of Covid lockdown, but it applied just as well to catching up after the holiday season, and I think it’s a nice new tradition.

Looking forward

That’s what I see going forward – a mix of old traditions and new experiences. But new inspiration requires input from you, the members! As the board, we do our best to arrange everything so our members can enjoy events and spend time with one another. But we also want everyone to feel a part of the club not just by attending, but also by having a say and being involved. So if you have any skills or interests you want to share with us, for example you love social media, or building websites, or are always taking great pics, we would love to have more of you involved so please let us know!

I’m looking forward to the rest of this club year, we’ve got a nice schedule of events coming up, so be sure to check out the calendar, and see you all there!

All the best,
