National Convention Operations Manual

Our conventions are an important part of TCA the membership experience, and the process of being designated and then conducting the convention is a complex process, requiring considerable planning and management skills.

National Convention Operations Manual.The National Convention Operations Manual has been developed from past TCA National Conventions. The National Board of Directors has voted to make this manual a freestanding document, incorporating all current National Board policies.

The current version may be consulted here. When future revisions are made, they will be posted here.
