TAB Board elections process underway

 - 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 10 of the 37 seats on the Board. 

Of those 10, 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 Friday, June 6, after reviewing the lists provided of all members eligible to serve. 

Members may nominate themselves.

The Board meets up to six times each year, including twice by conference call. 

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 25. 

Results will be announced at TAB’s Annual Convention & Trade Show, Aug. 6-7 in Austin.

Leaving the Board this year because of term limits are Mike Wenglar, serving in the Pioneer/Retired seat (the membership category now called the Golden Mic Club) and Greg McAlister of KRIS-TV Corpus Christi, serving in an Appointed seat.

Also leaving the Board this year is Past Chairman Mary Mike Hatcher of Bryan Broadcasting, who is concluding her term on the Executive Committee.

The proposed slate of officers will be presented to the membership by the TAB Nominating Committee under the leadership of TAB Board Chairman Mike Lee of KXXV-TV Waco.

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

If this tradition continues, a TV member would be recommended as Treasurer this year.

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