Nashville, TN — Are you interested in getting more involved in TMA? We are currently taking volunteers for several open positions on our committees. TMA has nine committees comprised of members located throughout the state. Committees often create the work product behind the important policies and programs that affect our members.

The TMA Board of Trustees reviews committee composition and considers the nominees every January. Those who are selected will serve for two years. The deadline to submit is September 15.

Below is a list of eight committees that serve under the Board of Trustees with open positions along with a description:

  • Constitution and Bylaws Committee: Maintain oversight of TMA official managing document providing insight and direction as to changes and amendments.
  • Education Committee: Review CME program applications, resolve conflicts of interest to assure unbiased education, identify learning gaps for educational content development, review content to assure best practices and provide review and improvement over sessions and the entire educational process.
