The Executive Board consists of the elected officers, members of the Regional Advisory Committee, and five members of the Review Committee of Past Presidents. Legal counsel serves as an ex-officio member.
The officers are determined by the Executive Board and include a president, president-elect, vice-president, secretary, historian, past president, and executive secretary/treasurer. With the exception of the executive secretary/treasurer, officers must have had at least two years of full-time administrative responsibilities in an educational setting.
TCWSE relies heavily on our members to keep the organization vibrant and viable.
Regional Advisory Committee
Each regional council recommends its Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) member. If no functioning regional council is in place, the vice president makes a recommendation to the president, who sends the recommendation to the Executive Board for a vote.
