Executive Board Nominations
The Texas Library Association is governed by a 10-member Executive Board which includes the president, president-elect, past-president, treasurer, ALA councilor, and five representatives-at-large. The executive director serves as secretary and is a non-voting member of the board.
The Executive Board recommends matters of policy, budget, and operations to Council, and members are elected annually by TLA membership.
The Executive Board meets quarterly, generally in-person, in January, April at the Annual Conference. July at the Officer Governance Training & Workshop and October. Executive Board members are responsible for their own travel and registration to the Annual Conference and Officer Training Workshop. Travel stipends are available as needed for the January and October meetings.
