The purpose of the Tennessee TSA Membership Committee is to foster the growth and development of high quality, engaged TSA chapters across the state of Tennessee. They are to ensure that the Executive Council is informed and up-to-date on initiatives and statuses pertaining to chapter development and growth. They are also required to serve as an advisor to the Executive Council to aid in membership growth.
Throughout the year, the membership committee creates unique resources to support local chapter development and growth, provide outreach to any chapters with identified needs (including new chapters, restarted chapters, or chapters with new advisors), work to foster the development of new chapters at schools where TSA has no active presence, and advance the TSA program in identified schools in each region to be able to attend state and/or national conference.
