New bylaws were adopted at the 2017 Annual Membership Meeting. These new bylaws, among other things, increased the number of directors, changed the method for electing the Executive Committee, and established several standing Committees.

The affairs of TTA are managed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The Board consists of nine at-large directors, who serve staggered three year terms; three regional directors who serve staggered three year terms; and representatives from each chapter who serve one year terms. The board elects four officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) who serve one year terms as the Executive Committee. The board meets four times a year at times and places announced on the web calendar page and in the Tennessee Trails newsletter. TTA members are welcome at any of these meetings and are encouraged to attend.

(The information provided here is for the new 2019 Board. Board members whose terms expire at the end of 2018 are shown for reference.)
