Nominations for TAB Board Seats Due June 15

- Members Choose by Radio/TV Market Size

Nominations for TAB Board of Directors elections are due by June 15. GMs can submit their choices by replying to the email they received from me on Friday, May 29, and if that email is lost they can request a re-send.

Ballots listing the top two nominees in each category will be emailed on June 19 and votes must be cast by July 10.

Members can weigh in only on the seats representing their market categories and on the slate of officers to be listed in the final ballot. Only one vote per licensed station may be cast in the nominating process and the election.

Apportionment, Term Limits
Board seats are apportioned according to medium type and market size. TV stations have three seats each for the four largest markets and the remaining markets, plus three seats selected from the TV membership at-large. Radio stations have four seats each for large, medium and small markets as defined in the TAB Bylaws.

Additional seats up for election represent non-commercial stations, Associate members, Golden Mic Club members, and educators.

Directors may serve up to two consecutive three-year terms. If appointed to fill a vacancy with an unexpired term, they may serve out that term before running for the seat. The term limit clock starts ticking when they win the seat in their own right.

Of the 11 openings, nine are held by incumbents eligible for re-election. One officer and two current directors are term-limited and not eligible to run for re-election this year, including:

  • Sarah Frazier, Entercom Houston – Executive Committee, Immediate Past Chairman
  • Wayne Reed, KFDA/KEYU/KZBZ-TV Wichita Falls – Other Market TV
  • Pat Stacey, KLTV/KTRE-TV Tyler, Lufkin – Other Market TV (Appointed)

Current officers and directors whose terms continue past this year are not eligible for nomination and are not listed on the nomination form.

Board Responsibilities
The Board meets four times per year, typically in person at the TAB building in Austin, though 2020’s meetings have been held electronically because of the pandemic. Committees usually meet electronically.

Board members are responsible for advising TAB staff on member services and legislative policy, providing fiduciary oversight for the organization and assisting with all major organizational efforts, including the Public Education Partnership program, membership recruitment and the Annual Convention.

Board members are not compensated or reimbursed for traveling to Board meetings, nor do they receive complimentary admission to TAB events.

Questions regarding TAB Board Elections can be directed to TAB’s Oscar Rodriguez or Beth Bobbitt.
