New Name: The Border Consortium

As the political environment began to change and improve in Burma/ Myanmar beginning with the elections in 2010, the potential need for the Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC) to be prepared to change its name was recognised. This became more important after being invited by the government to discuss the possibility of establishing a presence inside the country in September 2012. The choice of The Border Consortium (TBC) was pragmatic requiring only minor adjustments to the logo to ensure familiarity and continuity. The new name was approved by members at the Annual General Meeting held at the beginning of November 2012 and has been registered in the UK. It is now used for all legal purposes and the new name and logo is in use on all stationery, forms reports, signs etc.
