Republic Day reception at the Turkish Consulate

On October 29, TACAM board members attended the Republic Day reception organized by the Turkish Consulate in Chicago. We met with the new Consul General Hon. Ayşe Selcan Şanlı and wished her the best of luck on her new position.

We look forward to working with her in several issues pertinent to the Turkish American community living in Michigan. We also invited her to Michigan, our cultural center, and our new Atatürk Park.

The reception was held in the Union League in downtown Chicago, and it was well attended by the members of the Turkish Americans as well as friends of Turkey. We had the opportunity to chat with Turkish business people as well as the representatives from other Turkish cultural associations in the region.

Here are few pictures from the night:
