TASFAA's Committees and Task Forces

TASFAA is an all-volunteer organization. In addition to the Board of Directors, the leadership of the organization is made up of five (5) standing committees, ten (10) Ad-hoc committees, and four Task Forces. Any individual linked to an active TASFAA member organization can volunteer to serve on the Committees or Task Forces.  A call for volunteers occurs each fall around the time of the Annual Conference, however individuals wishing to volunteer can offer their time and talents at any time.
