Vistage vs. TEC Language

TEC Logo Vistage Logo

How should we refer to the worldwide community of Chairs, Members, Speakers, Staff, and Trusted Advisors?

I recognize that many of the readers of our blogs, members of our LinkedIn Discussion Groups, and followers on Facebook and Twitter are from the worldwide community, ranging from Hong Kong to Vancouver. In most of the US, we call it Vistage (there are some exceptions), and outside of the US, we call it TEC.

For ease of communication, please accept our use of the name Vistage even though you may be part of a TEC community. We mean no disrespect, but rather use this naming convention as means to avoid tripping over ourselves in referring to the worldwide community of Vistage and TEC Members.

I realize that I probably don’t have to publish this blog post on this subject; however, I thought it might be useful to explain why we were only using the Vistage label.

We would like to embrace the entire worldwide Vistage/TEC community that is interested in learning and growing. Please accept our use of the Vistage Label when referring to the entire worldwide community.

Thank you.
