Mala Raman, Communications & Outreach
Tilburg International Club has come a long way from its start in 2008. Since we started the club, I’ve contributed invarious capacities on the Board and have enjoyed seeing the club from all different perspectives. I’m currently in the role of strengthening our online presence, supporting the growth of our membership base and developing sustainable business partnerships.
Our Online Presence
Our communications priority has always been to create a strong online awareness of our club, events, goals and attractive membership benefits through Facebook (feel free to visit now!), Twitter @tilintclub, Instagram @tilburg_international_club and, of course, our own Tilburg International Club website. We rely on our members, guests, sponsors and community leaders to help spread the word about what our club can offer internationals in Brabant. (more…)

Knight of the Order of Oranje-Nassau
Ridder van de Orde van Oranje Nassau
by Hein van Oorschot
Anne van Oorschot is one the founding members of the tilburg international club.
She established the club in 2008 and served as its first president for 6 years.
She recently received a decoration from the Royal House of the Netherlands (Ridder van de Orde van Oranje Nassau) in April 2020!
What is the Ridder van de Orde van Oranje Nassau?
The Order of Orange-Nassau is a civil and military Dutch order of chivalry founded on 4 April 1892 by the Queen regent Emma, acting on behalf of her under-age daughter Queen Wilhelmina.
The order is a chivalric order open to “everyone who has earned special merits for society”. These are people who deserve appreciation and recognition from society for the special way in which they have carried out their activities. (more…)

14.05.2015 If you missed TIC’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 14th, you missed a great time! A great time at an AGM? Yes, you read correctly!
tíc Board of Directors hard at work!
We had a nice turnout and, after a welcome coffee with sweets, we began the evening as we do every year, with a short presentation over the club and how we are performing. All board members are still in term, so no need for a vote but our treasurer, Yiyi Bai, will be leaving us at the end of the club year and we are in search of a replacement. Next, Anne shared our membership numbers which are slightly up from last year but still considerably lower than when we had the first influx of university members. (more…)

20 Jun 2020. 2020 has been an unusual year, and our annual picnic was a bit different this year as well- but still a very fun get-together and pleasant way to spend a beautiful weekend afternoon.
We were all thankful that conditions have improved in the Netherlands such that we could meet up again and socialize in a group. It was great to catch up with fellow tíc members and even meet a new family to tíc!
