TEXAAN Leadership

Volunteers lead all segments of TEXAAN. Leadership represents a variety of institutions across the state. Their work is essential to the field of advising as they identify the needs of the various members and develop the means for fulfilling those needs while building a lifelong network of colleagues and friends.
