TCOPA Executive Board Announcements and Updates:

Executive Board Update: TCOPA Treasurer Scott Johnson had to resign due to health reasons. Please keep Scott in your prayers. TCOPA Executive Board has appointed Joe Tarrant to fill this position. Also Randall Baldwin was appointed as Parliamentarian.

TCOPA President Bryan Proctor II also submitted a temporary leave of absence due to health and personal reasons. He will resume as President as soon as he can. During his temporary absence Kristi Gilbert 1st V.P. will be the acting TCOPA President. The position of 1st V.P. will be temporarily vacant.

TCOPA ByLaws Update: The executive board has not heard from the old bylaws subcommittee. A new bylaws subcommittee has been formed and given a timeline to submit edits and amendments to the executive board.

​Nominations/Awards: False assumptions have been floating around regarding the selection of winners. Selections are based on submissions which are reviewed. If only one nomination form is submitted for a category then that single submission is obviously a winner. We strongly encourage competition in the nomination process. Get your nominations completed and submitted prior to the deadline. If anyone needs help with completing a nomination form please contact 2nd V.P. Mitch Vaughn at info@txcop.org and in the subject line write "nomination help". Thank You... TCOPA Executive Board.
