Who is the TGA Board?
Board members play an important role in representing the membership of TGA. They provide policy development, leadership and oversight for the organization and keep TGA connected to the guardianship community at large. Since TGA is an organization held in the public trust, without actual “ownership”, the Board leads TGA in the highest capacity of governance.
The Board consists of nine members. Board members must be either an individual professional or family member or the designated voting member of an organizational member. Board members serve a three- year term. Elections are held annually by electronic ballot to fill open board positions. Any member in good standing of TGA can nominate another member to serve on the Board. Directors are elected by a majority of the votes cast in an election and are asked to attend the annual Board retreat held in early November of the year prior to that in which they will serve to help prepare them for the upcoming term.
Participation in the TGA Board of Directors is a unique and important opportunity to help shape the education of guardians in Texas and be an advocate for legislation around guardianship in the state. Board members enjoy opportunities to grow personally and professionally, to develop leadership skills, gain unique experience and make lasting connections with a team of other passionate and motivated individuals.
