Message from Regional Director-


I want to wish each of you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! .

I am very much looking forward to serving you as your new Regional Director. Today begins my three year term and over the next few weeks I will be working to establish several new, regional committees & appointing officers. These include a welcome committee, social media committee, disaster relief committee, and regional awards committee. If you are interested in working in any of these areas, please let me know.

We will have our next regional meeting at the Chilli Cats show in Racine, Wisconsin, on Saturday, January 14. I have two topics on the agenda thus far and those include the regional awards and the Winter Meeting agenda I need your input on several very important topics and hope you will take the time to review the agenda. If you have any other topics you'd like included, please let me know.

Finally, I want to also take this time to thank Mike Vasquez for his many years of service to our GREAT region. We truly have the best region in TICA and he's led us well.

Attention Great Lakes Members...

The EO is working hard to reduce the number of credits folks have (to keep the IRS happy).
If your name is on the list, you have a credit with TICA. If you would like to know the amount, please email Liz Hansen (

How to use the credit:

1. If you have a TDS Online account, your credit is automatically deducted from Membership, Membership Renewal, Litter Registration and Kitten Registration services. If you do not have a TDS Online account, you may go to and follow the steps to set up a free account.

2. If you would like to apply your credit to other services, including pedigrees, etc., simply deduct your credit from the total service amount and remit the difference - note that you are applying your credit.

Please help us do some spring cleaning and spend your credit!
