  Nominations for TASFAA Board of Directors

Now and through March 23, the TASFAA Board of Directors will be accepting nominations for 2020-21 President-Elect and four Board Member At-Large positions. If you would like to nominate someone (or yourself) for these roles, please complete this nomination form.

Reason #1 to Serve on TASFAA’s Board – Encouraging Students to Pursue Higher Education” 

Members of the Board believe in the shared vision of making sure that Texas’ students have access to higher education. Caring about students is the most important part of TASFAA’s vision. Our Board members routinely find that the more they care and contribute toward positive student outcomes, the more they grow themselves.

If you or someone you know shares this vision, then TASFAA Board service is the perfect opportunity to contribute to something meaningful. Or maybe we should say…It’s the perfect opportunity to allow something meaningful to contribute to YOU.

Share the Vision
TASFAA…“is powered by volunteers and others that support our basic purpose of providing students with the resources and choices necessary to access higher education opportunities.”
