Councils & Committees

Councils and Committees of the TDA explore matters more in depth than is possible for the Board of Trustees. Councils and committees do much work of the Association as it draws together members from different parts of the state with relevant expertise to research issues and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees. Councils and committees do not have the power to act independently.
