TCMA initiated a new committee structure in 2010 around these concepts:
Seven committees (Executive Committee, Advocacy, City Managers of Tomorrow, Ethics, Membership, Nominating, and Professional Development).
The maximum committee size is 25 persons. The Nominating Committee is limited to ten (10) one full member from each TCMA region (Article III, section 6, TCMA Constitution).
Each committee is made up of ten regional representatives, appointed by the respective TCMA regional board representative and/or regional president. (NOTE: Each TCMA regional board representative/president is to appoint a regional representative for each committee. If not submitted, the TCMA president will appoint the regional representative).
The TCMA president will also appoint up to 15 additional volunteers, plus the chair and vice chair from the TCMA Board members.
Only voting TCMA members are appointed to the TCMA Nominating Committee.
The TCMA Executive Committee consists of the president, president-elect, vice president, immediate past president, and TML Board representative.
The TCMA president can create committees and task forces subject to the Board’s approval.The incoming TCMA president appoints committee vice chairs and the chair of the Ethics Committee.
Each TCMA region is provided an opportunity to be appropriately represented on each committee.
