    In the last TACA election, no candidate for the Secretary position was submitted so the Board is looking to appoint someone to fill this opening.  Here is a description of the Secretary position:

    Secretary:    The Secretary shall keep minutes for all TACA Board meetings and special and general session meetings, prepare TACA correspondence, as needed, send copies of minutes to the President within thirty (30) days of meetings, have custody of the organization's by-laws, corporate seal, general records, and archives of TACA, serve as the Chairperson and/or on committee(s) as appointed by the President, vote on items brought before the Board, and perform other duties as prescribed by the TACA Board.  Term length is two (2) years.

    If you would like to be considered for this position and you are willing and able to serve in this capacity, please complete the registration process to show your interest.  Applications can only be made by submitting them through TACA's website.  Mailed or emailed ballots will not be accepted.  Once you have successfully submitted your application, you will receive a confirmation email.  If you do not receive this email, your nomination was not received.  Please contact us and we will check the system to correct the error.

    All applications must be submitted by December 18, 2022. 

    TACA’s Board of Directors is comprised of a group of volunteers who donate their time to serve Animal Control Officers, animal shelter employees, and others who care about animal welfare in Texas.  The Board sets the vision and goals for TACA and helps improve the future of the profession through training, public outreach, and legislative action.  One board member alone cannot do this job and for our Board to be effective, we need a diverse group of members who are willing to contribute their unique talents while collaborating and working as a team with the other members of the board.

    What is required to be a TACA Board Member:

    • Be a current TACA member
    • Actively work in the animal control or animal welfare position within the State of Texas, be a retired animal welfare employee, and/or be an Honorary Member
    • Most importantly, be willing and able to help!

    What is not required to be a TACA Board Member:

    • You do not have to be the Manager/Supervisor of your agency.  We want a diverse group of opinions on the Board.  We need the voices of the front line Animal Control Officers just as much as we need to hear from program directors.   
    • You do not have to be able to take off for days/weeks at a time to do TACA business.  Many meetings are done via conference calls and in-person meetings are usually held on weekends to prevent interfering with normal work duties.
    • You do not have to have decades of experience in the animal welfare field.  You do need to have a strong grasp of the animal control/welfare profession, but there is not minimum experience requirement for Board Members. 

    A good Board Member is prepared for the meetings and keeps the commitments they make to the organization.  They share their opinions and ideas while making sure the organization’s needs are the top priority.  They get answers for the questions and concerns TACA’s members have.  They work to build relationships both within the association and with outside organizations.  And finally, they are willing to be a resource to both the Board and to the membership as a whole.
