Monthly Meetings

TPCGS monthly meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month, September through May. Generally, monthly meetings will be held at Bates Technical College, South Campus, 2201 South 78th St, Tacoma, Building E. (see Map to Bates). Lot 11 is available for parking in the evening.

Meetings usually begin about 6:00 pm, with member sharing and networking, follwed at 6:30 by a brief business meeting. After a break for snacks and visiting, the main presentation begins. Guests are always welcome! Meetings are generally adjourned by 9:00 pm.

Members are also invited to attend Board Meetings, which are held the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at Denny's, 5924 6th Ave, Tacoma. Contact a board member for further information.


Parking Permit Requirement
We have a new parking permit requirement at Bates. Please print off a copy and place in on your dash for each meeting. The permit is good for all meetings so keep it in your car. If you misplace your copy or cannot print one, copies will be available at each meeting.

Winter Weather and TPCGS meeting changes
Are you wondering if next a TPCGS meeting will be cancelled at the last minute, due to the weather? Check the school closures. If Bates Technical College and/or Tacoma Public Schools are closed next Tuesday, we will not meet. Of course, if your neighborhood streets are bad, or you are not comfortable driving in “iffy” weather, we understand. Instead, you might want to spend that meeting time doing some research or organizing your genealogy files!
