About the Executive Board

Executive Board members are selected by the full TLA membership in a general election in February. The TLA Bylaws provide information on officer terms, responsibilities, and election procedures. The Bylaws also outline the structure of the TLA Council.

Meetings

The Executive Board meets regularly during the TLA Annual Conference,  the TLA Annual Assembly, and in the winter.  TLA members may request the meeting dates and copies of the Executive Board meeting minutes from the TLA office.
