The 2023 Executive Committee Election Operating Procedures state that a petition may be initiated by the candidate or any TASA member in the region.
Members presenting a nomination must state that the nominee is a “paid up” TASA member and that the nominee’s permission has been obtained to offer his/her name as a candidate for election. The petition form can be obtained by contacting Ann Roland at TASA headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512.477.6361.
Petitions must be supported by signatures of TASA members in the region who belong to TASA in the Active Membership Category or the College + University + Agency Membership Category, totaling a number equal to 15 percent of the members in the region who are eligible to vote, but no less than five, during the prior membership year (2021-22). (See the number of signatures required for each odd-numbered region. The information is at the bottom of the page under “Petition Requirements.”)
Petitions containing the required number of signatures must be received by the TASA executive director no later than February 15, 2023.
