Marking a New Chapter in Business and Cultural Ties: TACCS Inaugurates with Pledge to Empower Turkish-American Business Community on the Historic Day of Turkish Republic’s Foundation
On the auspicious occasion of Turkish Republic Day, October 29, 2022, the Turkish American Chamber of Commerce of the South (TACCS) celebrated its inaugural ceremony, marking a significant milestone in the organization’s journey. This momentous event, aligning with a day of great national importance for Turkey, underscored the profound connection between TACCS’s mission and the cultural heritage it represents.
The ceremony was an embodiment of commitment and vision, with President Erhan Cevikel and the Board of Directors eloquently articulating the organization’s core objectives and reaffirming their dedication to the success and advancement of Turkish American businesses. This gathering served as a testament to TACCS’s resolve in fostering a thriving business environment within the Turkish-American community in the Southern United States.
In a gesture that symbolized recognition and respect, Omer Ince, the Commercial Attaché at the Turkish Consulate General in Miami, honored the occasion by presenting a plaque to President Erhan Cevikel. This accolade represented not just a personal achievement for Mr. Cevikel but also the collective aspirations and hopes of the Turkish-American business community.
Following the organization’s first elections, Mr. Cevikel was appointed the first President and CEO of the newly founded TACCS. Alongside him, SVP Selen Timur and Secretary General Gokhan Yavuz began their three-year term, forming the founding executive team. Their leadership is poised to guide TACCS through its formative years, laying the foundation for a prosperous future.
TACCS is dedicated to elevating the Turkish-American business community in the Southern United States. Central to its mission is the development of strong networks, advocacy for member interests, and the provision of essential educational resources. TACCS is committed to catalyzing economic growth, fostering innovation, and celebrating the rich cultural diversity within the community. By creating a nurturing and supportive environment, TACCS aims to be a catalyst for both business excellence and community development.
As TACCS embarks on this journey, it carries the spirit of the Turkish Republic Day – a symbol of resilience, progress, and unity. The chamber is set to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Turkish-American business relations, promoting not just economic interests but also cultural and communal ties that bind the United States and Turkiye.
