Officers & Executive Committee
The Executive Committee is TASA’s primary decision-making body, and consists of: four officers (the president, vice president, president-elect, and past president); one member elected from each of the 20 ESC regions; four at-large members; and the chairs of TASA’s Advocacy, Legislative, Member Engagement, and Professional Learning committees. The officers and Executive Committee work closely with TASA’s executive director and staff to conduct the business of the association.
