Turkish-American and International Women's Cultural and Charitable Society (TAIWCCS)
The Turkish-American Women's Cultural & Charitable Society was formed in January 1950 to foster and promote bicultural, educational, and social exchanges between Turkish and American women. In May of 2006, the word "International" was added to our name, and we now have a more expanded membership of women from a variety of countries. The carefully planned activities that make up the monthly programs benefit, not only the charities to which we contribute, but also the participants who have a chance to meet and make new friends while contributing to worthwhile causes. TAIWCCS is made up of several committees that plan and carry out various programs to raise money to support our University Scholarship girls and our Bookmobile schools. For more information contact Nancy Börekçi at (312) 490 03 45 or Carolyn Özcan at (312) 240 44 83.

Americans or spouses of Americans and to a limited number of others living in Ankara. Annual dues are $ 10 (US) for families or single membership.

Imagine my surprise when I see someone identified as the USA Girl Scouts Overseas point of contact in Ankara that i have never met. I am the Director of Membership Services, USA Girl Scouts Overseas North Atlantic. How do I go about updating this information? I am very sad to think that someonemay have tried to have thier daughter in the Girl SCout programsand no9t being able to connect withus. We actually hav e a very strong Girl SCout program in Ankara and a the Incirlik base in Adana. I look forward to hearing from someone to ensure the inforamtion is correct. I visit Turkey at least twice a year to work with our volunteers and girls. Carol E. Rhan
