Nominations and Elections

Each year, in August, TSPRA begins a process of gathering nominations of eligible TSPRA professional members who are qualified and willing to serve on the executive committee. Names are submitted to the State office for the positions of president-elect, several of the area and at-large vice presidents, and the chairperson-elect of the education foundation division. Then the Nominating Committee, chaired by the president-elect, meets during the annual TASA/TASB Convention to select a recommended slate of officers from the nominees.

NOMINATIONS: The nominating period has ended. We began accepting nominations on August 3, 2015 and closed the process on September 1, 2015.
