Welcome to our International Page

It was an exciting moment in Denmark in 2014 when the National Association of Tangent Clubs Great Britain, became a founder member of Tangent Club International.

We are keen to extend the hand of friendship to members of Tangent Clubs across the world and so it was a moving moment when we were able to Charter Tangent Ukraine following the Irish lunch on 28th March 2015.

You will find international clubs on our Club Finder and we will update information from clubs abroad as they provide it.

Please note that information on the directory page is for members use only and may ONLY BE USED for TANGENT  BUSINESS. When you open the directory page  you are implicitly agreeing with this statement.

Report to the TCI HYM in Marrakesh, Morocco on Saturday 13th October 2018

Greetings from GB&I!

Having already reported on our NAGM which was held before the TCI AGM in Austria, we are delighted to welcome India and Israel as full members of TCI, and the Netherlands as an Associate member. We are very happy to have two thriving Overseas clubs, Niort Atlantique in France, and Costa del Sol in Spain (– President Jill and I will be with them later this month). With our membership now standing at 10,400 in 560 clubs we are seeing a gradual decline with many clubs now celebrating 30, 40, 50 and even 60th Anniversaries. This means that some of our members through reasons of ill health and infirmity, are no longer able to maintain their clubs. With fewer than a total of 900 members of Ladies Circle in just over 100 clubs, you can see it is impossible for us to rely solely on recruiting retiring members of LC – not a problem many of your countries have to face. However, we are in good heart and thrilled that our own Alex Bennett was elected LCI V-P in Norway. She will be installed as LCI President next August in Rotterdam at the 60th LCI AGM. We are busy planning Tangent’s National Association’s 50 Glorious years of Fun and Friendship celebration on 12 September 2020, so save the date and come and join us! This year we have been thrilled to charter as one of our new clubs, Enniskillen (Northern Ireland) Tangent with over 30 members, who join with LC, RT and 41 Club for many of their activities. This is very exciting and encouraging. All our clubs have been busy successfully socialising and fund-raising side by side in the glorious summer weather, and our website, Face Book pages, our National magazine, our regular National and Regional emails, and our seven Regional Lunches, are valuable ways of promoting, publicising and reporting on our events for existing and prospective members. At our AGM next April, we are seeking to appoint a new post of Marketing and Membership to join our Board. This is a positive step to plan for the future. Our   side by side Conference with 41 Club is to be held 4-8 April 2019 in Torquay so we do hope some of you will be able to join us there. If not, see you in Belgium!


SEPTEMBER 2018: Many congratulations to Alexandra Bennett who has just been voted in as Ladies Circle International Vice President

Report of AGM held in Portschach, Austria in April 2018 – Melodie Brookes (IPP GB&I)

Greetings from Melodie!      IRO and IPP 2018-19       [email protected]   June 2018

TCI AGM: As the NATC TCI Councillor I attended the International Conference in Portschach am Worthersee, Austria at the end of April. It was a glorious setting by a beautiful lake with lots of fun and friendship in the sunshine. Gerd-Inger led the AGM with six voting Councillors representing Cyprus, Denmark, GB&I, Norway, Finland and Sweden. After the initial business, greetings, including those from LCI President, President of Agora, 41 Club International President and RTI President, and Councillors reports there was a break and only Tangent attendees were invited back for the TCI financial reports and proposals.

All but one of the amendments to the rules were passed, including 5diii ‘Candidates (for the International Board) shall be active members of their Full Member Association and have been members of Ladies Circle or wife or female partner of a current or past member of Round Table’ where we were the only country voting against, 5 for 1 against. There has since been some discussion on our closed Facebook page about the addition of ‘or wife or female partner of a current or past member of Round Table’ and I am grateful to our new TCI President, Paula Farnfield, for her explanation of the development of this wording.

After some explanation, the proposal to include the Standing Orders and Voting System in the rules, was lost, thus keeping some flexibility in the ability to continue to hold an AGM in unusual circumstances of travel or world disruption.

Apart from Capitation the only income for TCI is from the sale of TCI pins; it was announced that retiring Secretary Janette Korch had donated 300 pins to be sold. It was agreed that a further 250€ to be added to the travel budget for 2018-19 for the Board.

Tangent India and Tangent Israel were welcomed as new full members of TCI, and Tangent Holland and Tangent Belgium, as Associate members.

Paula was duly installed as the new President of TCI and her motto is ‘Make every moment count’. The new Vice-President is from Finland. The rest of the members of the TCI Board will be confirmed when all the countries have had their AGMs and all the posts have been filled.

There’s always TCI activity going on all around the world. The TCI Board would like to strongly recommend to you think at least twice before you join any of these activities. Record shows that travelling within the Round Table family is strongly addictive. Actually – one trip and you’re stuck. But if you’re fully aware of the hazard of being caught in never-ending friendship, fun and crazy events, you’re more than welcome to join the rest of us addicts. If you have any questions, contact your national IRO – but beware! She will probably try to persuade you to give into temptation.
