2020 Call for nominations to the TAA Council

As a member-driven organization, TAA relies on members’ willingness to get involved in governance and other activities of the association. The TAA Governance Committee announces a call for nominations for two open Council positions. Any member of TAA is eligible to serve on the Council. Nominations can be submitted online and must be received by March 2.

The term for Council positions is three years, with terms starting July 1, 2020. Council members are required to attend two meetings per year, one in January (usually in Florida, but subject to change) and one the day prior to the association’s annual conference, held traditionally in June.

Most travel and lodging expenses are reimbursable for the January meeting. Lodging and ground transportation are reimbursable for the June meeting.

The TAA Governance Committee reviews nominations for TAA Council positions, determines the final composition of the ballot, and oversees the election process. The TAA By-Laws charge the Governance Committee to develop the slate of nominees “to achieve, in its judgment, the optimal balance” that includes “maintaining an overall balance and diversity of perspectives, bringing needed expertise and experience onto Council, and, encouraging member participation not only in Governance but also in other activities of the TAA.”

If you are interested in nominating a TAA member for service on the TAA Council or a self-nomination, complete a nomination form. If you have any questions about serving on the TAA Council, contact Executive Director Michael Spinella at or 973-943-0501.
