TES is run by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. These Directors have been elected to 2 year or 1 year terms, depending on the number of votes they receive. Board meeting are chaired by the Parliamentarian who is also elected by the membership to a one year term and is a non-voting board member. The Secretary and Treasurer are selected by the Board from among themselves. The Arbiter is also elected by the membership. This position is not part of and is independent of the Board of Directors.
The Board is responsible for the overall management of the organization. They are responsible for setting policies as well. Many Directors also take day to day management responsibilities for running various areas of the organization.
TES’ daily operations are run by a group of standing committees, as well as any ad-hoc and special committees the board may create from time to time. Each standing committee has a Chair and a Vice-Chair. There is no requirement that the Chairs and Vice-Chairs be Board members, except for the Chairs of Communications and Finance, who are, respectively, the Secretary and the Treasurer.
