We were gathered to elect the 2016 Board of Directors of TALL at Ince Scott residence on November 21st.

The event’s hostess Hülya İnce Scott graciously opened her warm home for the lovely event. There were approximately 30 people in attendance, who enjoyed each other’s company on a beautiful sunny Southern California day. Hulya displayed top-notch hospitality; the guests enjoyed the best of Turkish cuisine, from baked goods to delicious desserts.

Our featured guest speakers were Didem Yılmaz McCullum and N. Alissa McFall. Their presentation focused on a very current topic – “Language Development Skills of Toddlers”. Both Didem and Alissa did an excellent job in educating our guests; especially since most of our guests’ toddlers or toddlers to be are bilingual!
Also introduced for the first time in SoCal was Giselle Sevgi’s jewelry line Egelique, which offers unique pieces made exclusively in Nazar Köy, İzmir. This fashion accessories line supports the ladies who make each item by hand, and almost every piece is one-of-a-kind.

There were a total of four open positions on the BOD that needed to be filled. Incumbent BOD members Ruhsar Boduryan, Güner Ayter and Past President Naime Berköz were reelected. Hülya Ince Scott is the newest addition to the BOD to serve in 2016. We thank all current BOD members for their dedication and contribution to TALL in 2015. We are confident you will continue to support TALL, as always. Welcome Hülya, we look forward to working with you…

As the members of the TALL Board of Directors, we would like to take this opportunity one more time to thank Hülya İnce Scott for hosting the event, Didem and Alissa, for their informative presentation and Giselle for the beautiful jewelry line.

As always we are very thankful to all our members and guests who support us unconditionally. HAPPY THANKSGIVING…

Look forward to seeing everyone at our next event…
