Officers & Executive Committee

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is TASA’s primary decision-making body. Members are elected by TASA members to represent each of the 20 ESC regions. The state president appoints an additional four at-large members from underrepresented segments of the membership. Four officers are elected by the Executive Committee and work closely with TASA’s executive director and staff to conduct the business of the association. The TASA Legislative Committee chair also serves on the Executive Committee.
