The first Tiger Bay Club was founded in Miami Florida in 1964. Stephen Paul Ross, a political consultant, led the group that founded Tiger Bay. The club was founded as a nonpartisan political club. There is no central Tiger Bay Organization. Through a loose affiliation, Tiger Bay has grown to approximately 20 clubs in Florida. Most Clubs tend to model their bylaws from the same document. Today, one of the largest Tiger Bay Clubs is in Tampa with approximately 750 members. The Tampa Club meets twice a month.
