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!
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
