Terneuzen International Club (TIC)


The main purpose of TIC is to help newcomers from all countries to find their way in the Netherlands. The club also supports people who are returning to Terneuzen after a stay abroad, or simply everyone who appreciates doing activities within an international group. TIC fosters inclusion and diversity by helping to integrate Dow employees into their new working environments.


Who can participate?

Dow employees and also their partners are welcome as TIC members to enjoy all TIC@Dow activities, one requirement being that they must also be registered members of Dow PV. The “Dow member” TIC membership fee applies to both employees and their partners (currently 25Euro/year in 2024).

It is worth noting that, in 2023 there were 232 active TIC members (a 40% increase compared to 2022 and the most in the last 5 years).


What is in TIC@Dow for you?

We provide our members with educational and social opportunities to discover and enjoy life in the Netherlands! We organize multiple social, cultural, and sport events, which mostly take place during the evenings, and weekends.



The club organizes activities with an international character, enabling the members to interact with people having similar interests and share enjoyable experiences together. TIC thus provides members with social opportunities to network, aims to help them feel welcome, and engages them to discover and enjoy life in the Netherlands. This is accomplished through organizing multiple social, cultural and sport events.

In 2023 TIC has organized/co-organized 42 events varying from cultural, sport & creative events. 11 of these events were organized in collaboration with MIX/other ERGs/local community/other PV sub clubs, etc.
