Directory of Information


Much information previously available to members or others in print format is available on our web sites, thereby reducing printing and mailing costs and allowing more frequent updating.

We encourage those who were accustomed to finding this information in the old printed Directory of Information to use the menu system or search system of this site to locate it. Much of it is located under the main menu button "About TCA" above, where such lists as Past Presidents, and Life and Honorary Members may be found by selecting the General Information dropdown. 

Members wishing to search for other members now have two ways of finding it:

NOTE: The official policy regarding membership information is as follows:

Under no circumstances is any directory to be sold, traded, or provided to a non-TCA member. Any unauthorized use may result in loss of membership.
