TLA Committees

With 23 standing committees, there is sure to be an area that interests you! Serving on a TLA committee is a great way to grow your professional network, gain leadership experience, and meet some really fun people. Committee charges are outlined in the TLA Standing Rules. The TLA President appoints all members of the committees. You must be a current member to serve on a standing committee. Committee appointments will be made for the following year, starting in October.
