Message from Regional Director-

The Great Lakes Region of The International Cat Association (TICA) encompasses 12 states, and Manitoba, Nunavut, and Saskatchewan, Canada. We are a very large area, with a lot of members. We are a very friendly region, and we are incredibly proud of the cats that we show, be they pedigreed cats or rescued/mixed breed cats.

The region is always looking for internal expansion opportunities, and we are excited at the prospect of not only keeping our current clubs strong, but also growing into new areas - and meeting new friends and cat enthusiasts along the way!

Once a year, during the summer, we hold a Regional Show & Banquet, where we celebrate our fine felines' accomplishments over the previous show season. It is a wonderful time of felines, fun and friendships! Show cats for the next year often make their debut at the accompanying cat show!

These principles have made the Great Lakes region what it is today - full of friendship and camaraderie. Encouragement for our fellow exhibitors. Support for all of our regional clubs. Assistance to new people who have chosen to try our association. Accolades for our regional Junior Exhibitors. These are the ideals that have made our region what it is today, and these are the actions that keep our region strong.

Be sure to join our regional YahooGroups for the most up-to-date information on our region, and for upcoming show information.

Sincerely, Mike Vasquez
Great Lakes Regional Director
