Members and Future Leaders of TAMS
The Tennessee Association of Middle Schools is interested in using your skills (or those of colleagues) in providing leadership and service to our organization as a member of the Board of Trustees. Individuals willing to serve should be prepared to attend all TAMS Board meetings that are normally held on Friday evenings prior to drive-in conferences, usually in October, January, and April, in addition to meeting at the annual conference. Board meetings and conferences rotate between east, middle, and west Tennessee. Attendance is imperative in helping TAMS remain a dynamic organization committed to Middle Level students.
