TAG Board members serve three year terms and are elected by the existing Board members before TAG's Annual Board meeting each November. TAG Board members can serve two consecutive terms and then must rotate off the Board, unless they are an officer. Officers may complete their officer term and then rotate off the Board. The Board has staggered terms so that each year three existing Board members rotate off the Board and three new members join the Board. The Board has the discretion to approve Emeritus Board members each November for a one year term. Emeritus members can be re-elected without any limits. TAG is governed by a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, who are the officers of the organization.
The role of the Board President is to provide leadership, set priorities for the organization and manage the TAG staff member. The role of the Vice President is to prepare to succeed the President. The role of the Secretary is to take minutes at the meetings and the role of the Treasurer is to approve expenditures and make sure the staff acts in a fiscally appropriate manner. The role of the Board is to provide input, ideas and feedback to the TAG staff member and President and to participate in decision-making processes for the organization. The Board meets monthly.
