TASA’s Executive Committee volunteers govern the Association and manage its daily business as outlined in the Constitution and by established policies. The Executive Committee consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Postgraduate portfolio leader and up to four portfolio leaders as voting members, as well as the Immediate Past President and one representative of the editorial team for each of TASA’s publications as non-voting ex officio members. Every two years an Executive Election is held. The next call for nominations will be disseminated to all TASA members on August 1 this year.
We encourage all members to consider standing for an Executive position. To assist your thinking about this opportunity, please access a copy of TASA’s current Executive Organisational Chart here and the current Executive Committee Position Descriptions here.
Please note, prior to an election, the Executive review the four changeable portfolios and decide if amendments are needed. After a detailed review process, it was decided that a new portfolio focused on equity and inclusion would be added and the responsibilities for digital media distributed across other portfolios, particularly public engagement. The pending election will see a call for portfolio leaders for:
- Applied Sociology
- Equity & Inclusion
- Public Engagement
- Thematic Groups
Position descriptions for each of the above portfolios and the other committee positions are available on TASAweb here. If you are interested in a particular Executive position, and you would like more information, we encourage you to contact the member currently in that role for a confidential chat. If you are interested in the new Equity and Inclusion portfolio, please contact TASA’s President, Dan Woodman. The current Executive are listed on TASAweb here.
