The TODA Leadership is comprised of five members of the Board of Directors from across the state.  The Board carries the fiduciary responsibility of the association and also considers and makes decisions for the administration of all activities of the association.  The Board convenes throughout the year to discuss, guide and implement the goals of the association.

Election of the TODA Board of Directors

The TODA Board of Directors is voted on and elected by the membership.  Each year, a new board member is elected, the Member-At-Large, and this person will serve for five years advancing through the offices each successive year.  Board members volunteer their time and take pride in giving back to their profession.  Serving on the Board is a significant commitment and requires dedication and time.

If you are considering running for the Member-At-Large position, please review the duties of the Board and ensure you are willing to set aside the time and necessary commitment to serve for five years.  TODA needs strong leadership!
