TASA Will Conduct Executive Committee Elections for Regions 2 & 6

Due to special circumstances, TASA will hold elections to fill two vacancies on the Executive Committee. Jim Rumage, superintendent of Banquete ISD representing Region 2, was recently elected to fill this position for the new two-year term beginning June 1, 2014, however, he has notified us that he will be taking a new position as superintendent at Crane ISD in Region 18 and must resign his position. Additionally, Eddie Coulson, superintendent of College Station ISD representing Region 6, has announced his retirement and will be completing his term on the Executive Committee on May 31, 2014.

TASA operating procedures provide that the vacancies may be filled by election at a regional meeting. However, to ensure that all members in these regions have an opportunity to vote in this important election, we will conduct the elections as follows: TASA members who are interested in being a candidate to fill either the Region 2 or Region 6 position should state their interest in writing (by fax, e-mail or regular mail) to: Johnny Veselka, Executive Director, Texas Association of School Administrators, 406 East 11th Street, Austin, TX 7870, by e-mail to or by fax to 512-482-8658 by 5 p.m., Thursday, March 27, 2014.
