Process begins for TAB Board elections

TAB begins Board election process

 - Nominations due June 20

On June 6, TAB members received an email with a call for nominations for the TAB Board of Directors, kicking off a nearly two-month process to fill 11 of the 37 seats on the Board. 

Of those 11, eight are held by directors eligible for re-election.

Members vote only in their market or membership categories, and also in the Associate Member election. 

Nominations are due June 20.

Members should reply to the email they received on Monday, June 6, after reviewing the lists provided of all members eligible to serve. Members may nominate themselves.

The Board meets four times per year, all in person at the TAB building in Austin.

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 NCSA program and membership recruitment.

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

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

Ballots listing the top two nominees for each seat and a slate of officers will be emailed to TAB members on June 24. 

Results will be announced at TAB’s Annual Convention & Trade Show, Aug. 10-11 in Austin.

Five directors are leaving the board because of term limits:

  • Chris Paddie, KMHT Marshall (Executive Committee)
  • Brian Purdy, CBS Radio Dallas-Fort Worth (Large Radio)
  • Patti C. Smith, KVUE-TV Austin (Large Market Television)
  • Gayle Kiger, KCEN-TV Waco-Temple-Bryan (Other Television)
  • Tony DeMars, Texas A&M Commerce (TABE)

The proposed slate of officers will be presented to the membership by the TAB Nominating Committee under the leadership of TAB Board Chairman Roger Bare, KIAH-TV Houston

Traditionally, each officer advances to the next position, leaving the Secretary’s office vacant. The new officer typically alternates between Radio and TV.

If this tradition continues, a television member would be recommended as Secretary this year.

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