We hope you will take the opportunity to cast your vote in the TLA Executive Board election and in any unit elections that are utilizing the electronic voting system. Elections open February 16 and close March 14 at 11:59pm.

TLA has partnered with an unbiased, third-party election company, Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS) to conduct elections. To preserve voting integrity, TLA does not track which members do or do not vote, or how they cast their votes.

On Thursday, February 16, you will receive an email from SBS with voting instructions and login credentials. The email will be from noreply@directvote.net To ensure your election specific broadcast email arrives in your inbox, simply add noreply@directvote.net as an approved sender.

If you do not receive an email on February 16 by 5pm, or need your login credentials resent, please contact SBS directly at support@directvote.net.

To access the TLA election site, please click on the link provided and enter your member number and election passcode which was provided in the email from SBS.

In addition to their official candidate bios and statements of concern, nominees for the TLA Executive Board were asked to answer two questions:

  • What is your most memorable TLA experience?
  • How will your candidacy advance the work of TLA on behalf of Texas libraries?
