TASB Advocacy Agenda Call for Resolutions

The Association annually calls upon districts to submit new Advocacy Resolutions that will help form TASB’s responses to issues before the Legislature and other governmental entities during the legislative session. TASB accepts resolutions between mid-March and mid-June every year.

The Advocacy Agenda—the plan of action TASB pursues during the legislative biennium—consists of two parts:

  • Advocacy Priorities: A set of legislative goals arising from TASB’s grassroots process. 
  • Advocacy Resolutions: District-submitted stances guiding TASB’s response to other issues that might arise before the Legislature and other governmental entities.

The TASB Delegate Assembly adopts the Advocacy Agenda each fall. Resolutions require approval by a simple majority of the Delegate Assembly.

How to submit a resolution

Proposed resolutions are first reviewed by the TASB Resolutions Committee and then by the TASB Board. In September, the Delegate Assembly will adopt approved resolutions.

Late resolutions

Resolution proposals submitted after the June 15 bylaws deadline can be considered only on an emergency basis. Each proposed resolution submitted after the deadline must be accompanied by a statement describing the nature of the emergency.
