TVEA Elections Committee
The Elections Committees ensures the election process is conducted in a manner that voters and candidates alike can be assured that reasonable rules of ethical conduct and procedures have been adopted, and are followed both in spirit and practice. They oversee the entire elections process from announcing elections through the announcement of election results.
The elections committee has a chair and members who are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Executive Board at the beginning of each year. Executive Board members are not permitted to serve on the Elections Committee, per CTA guidelines.
The vested elections committee members are solely responsible for the counting and reporting of votes and results. Other members may volunteer to prepare election materials. TVEA is pleased to have an elections committee filled to capacity and representation from all instructional levels.
