That’s a wrap for our membership campaign in 2015. We thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goals during our 2015 Membership Campaign. Since we started this endeavor in September, you helped us gain:
- 468 Total memberships
- 57 new TCA members
- 62% Charter member renewals
We cannot thank you enough for your support. This year’s membership drive has been a great effort by many committed volunteers. Big thanks to our Membership Committee, Tech Committee and TCA Data Team, and our Taikothon coordinators!
Thank you to everyone who donated prizes for the raffles and to all the members who renewed or joined TCA for 2016. We look forward to another great year of taiko together!
A final congratulations to the lucky TCA Members who were winners in our 2015 Raffles.
