The CM Retreat is an exclusive Event, meant for TiE Charter Members and their families, where TiE CMs meet old friends, discuss the charter of TiE, and foster closer ties within the TiE CM community. There will be several activities planned for CMs and their families; including Networking mixers, Inspirational speaker sessions, Sightseeing tours and Formal Awards & Gala Night ceremony celebrating excellence at TiE Chapters around the world.

Almaty is one of the most beautiful cities in Kazakhstan, situated on the foothills of the Zailisky Alatau mountains. It is one of the largest cities in Central Asia, with a population of 1.5 million. Almaty served as the capital of Kazakhstan until 1998 and continues to be its largest trading and cultural hub.

Rixos Almaty Hotel is amongst the most luxurious and elegant five-star hotels in the region, a great venue for our group's stay and meetings. We selected July 4th summer holiday weekend - from July 2-5th, 2020, as the best time of the year for CMs to visit with their families.
