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 that serve staggered three year terms; three regional directors that serve staggered three year terms; and representatives from each chapter that serve one year terms. The board elects four officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Tresurer) that serve one year terms as an 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. Members are welcome at any of these meetings and are encouraged to attend.
