Looking for a little bonus excitement in your membership? All memberships are counted as a part of our friendly regional competition. Who will be the first to surpass their regional membership goals during the 2020 Membership Drive? We’ve set goals for each region based on last year’s membership totals. So, no matter the size of your local community, everyone has the opportunity to reach the same milestones and achievements throughout the campaign. How many people can your region claim? Let’s make sure TCA has voices representing every corner of our community!

Be sure to keep an eye on this page throughout the competition – you never know what kind of surprises may be unlocked! Results will be updated every evening.
