The Association’s Board of Trustees — its group of policymakers — is elected by delegates from TECA’s 23 member systems at the Association’s annual meeting. The board is composed of 12 members, four from each of three regions, all of whom are elected for four-year terms. Each year, these trustees elect officers from among their own ranks.
