TSTA House of Delegates

The TSTA House of Delegates (HoD) is TSTA’s highest decision-making body and serves a vital role in the governance of TSTA. Delegates are elected as representatives to the HoD, and may establish goals for TSTA, amend its bylaws, and act on recommendations from the TSTA officers, board, or committees. Elections for officers, NEA Directors, and At-Large members of the TSTA Board are held at this annual assembly.
