With a rich tradition of collaboration, TASBO members use research and standing committees to discuss hot topics, build lifelong professional connections, find solutions to common problems, and help guide the association. There are 13 research committees divided by subject-matter, and three standing committees. Standing committee members are approved by the board of directors.

Research Committees

Any TASBO member can join any or all of the 13 research committees. Committees normally meet twice per year in-person, and as needed. Participation is encouraged, but not required to maintain committee membership. Additionally, some committees have online discussion groups in TASBO Connect. Your selection(s) should be based on interest, experience, or expertise in the Committee's identified specialty area. Each committee chair is appointed by the board of directors.
