  • Published by Vedat

Roll Call recognized Turkish Coalition of America (TCA) as the fourth largest sponsor of Congressional travel in 2012 following the American Israel Education Foundation, The Aspen Institute and the Congressional Institute.

tcaSince 2009, TCA has sponsored 15 trips and taken nearly 150 members of Congress and senior staff to Turkey and its neighboring countries to educate Congress on the importance of a vibrant U.S.-Turkey relationship and to bring balanced dialogue to key issues on Capitol Hill.

"TCA is proud to facilitate trips to Turkey for members of Congress and their staff, as this personal experience illuminates the deep bonds between the Turkish and American people firsthand," said TCA President G. Lincoln McCurdy. "Visitors participate in meetings with key Turkish governmental and business officials, leaders of the non-profit community and academia, and are introduced to Turkey's rich culture, dynamic private sector, and its long history of beneficial relations with the U.S."

TCA looks forward to working with the 113th Congress and the Obama administration to encourage policies and programs that continue to build on the deep cultural, economic, and strategic ties between our two nations.
