TCTA’s Directors’ Council includes statewide elected leaders: the members of the Executive Board (president, president-elect, immediate past-president and TCTA committee chairs) as well as district directors elected from each of TCTA’s 20 districts. To ensure that the composition of the council reflects TCTA’s diverse membership, ethnic minority directors-at-large are elected, if needed, by the voting delegates at the TCTA Annual Convention (the TCTA Representative Assembly).
TCTA 2016-17 Executive Board
The TCTA Executive Board comprises 10 members elected to statewide positions. In addition to other duties, these officers coordinate activities in corresponding TCTA departments at headquarters.
The TCTA president is elected annually by delegates to the Representative Assembly, who are sent to the TCTA Convention as representatives of local CTA affiliates. The president, who must be an active member of TCTA, serves as a liaison among the members, elected leaders and staff. He or she is available to attend local affiliate and district functions on behalf of TCTA.
The TCTA president-elect serves as chair of the Communications/Public Relations Committee, and the TCTA immediate past-president is chair of the Student Issues Committee.
District directors are available to assist all CTAs within the districts they represent. These directors represent member views at the state level, assist CTAs with membership recruitment and local activities, and keep local leaders apprised of TCTA activities and accomplishments.
