TAB Board Elections Soon Underway

 - Nominations due June 26

The elections process for TAB’s 37-member Board of Directors opens soon with a call for nominations to fill 11 seats representing Radio and TV stations in various market sizes, as well as retired and associate members and educators. Members interested in serving may nominate themselves.

Keep an eye out for emails on June 9 that will include links to lists of members eligible to serve and instructions for submitting nominations by the June 26 deadline. Ballots listing the top two nominees in each category will be emailed on June 30 and votes must be cast by July 31.

Of the 11 openings, seven are held by incumbents eligible for re-election. Five current directors or officers are term-limited and not eligible to run again this year, including:

  • Roger Bare, Houston – Executive Committee, Immediate Past Chairman
  • Mark Krieschen, Cox Media Group Houston – Large Market Radio
  • Evan Armstrong, iHeart Media Waco – Medium Market Radio
  • Jerry Hanszen, KGAS AM/FM Carthage – Small Market Radio
  • David Loving, Univision Media Houston – Large Market TV

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.

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


The proposed slate of officers will be presented to the membership by the TAB Nominating Committee under the leadership of TAB Board Chairman Ben Downs of Bryan Broadcasting.

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 Radio member would be recommended as Secretary this year.

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