About Us!

The Thai Association of Iowa (TAI) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007. Our ambition is to enlist the Thai community into a force for cultural sharing and discovery between Iowa's diverse communities, while also preserving the native traditions of Thailand. Furthermore, TAI endeavors to promote good will through civic engagement, to celebrate a full range of the Thai spirit, from good-natured fun to compassion for those in need.

Our Current Goals:

1. Ensure representation of Iowa's Thai community at the Iowa Asian Alliance's annual Asian Heritage Festival in Des Moines.
2. Promote Thai tourism
3. Promote Thailand's cultures/traditions
4. To assist and support issues of vital interest to the Thais or Thai Americans in the state of Iowa.
