Many councils and committees hold business meetings in conjunction with TMA Conferences. At the discretion of the chair, these groups may invite other TMA members and guests to attend their meeting. The chair may also determine whether a guest can participate in the meeting. Guests may be required to leave if the council or committee goes into an executive session for closed deliberation. If you are not a member of these groups, please ensure you have spoken with the appropriate chair or TMA staff to request or confirm attendance. Meetings of TMA boards are limited to the members of those boards.
