About TCAA | Board and Committees

Board & Committees Overview 

Our mission is to create an environment that supports the development of strong community associations, professional community association managers, and management companies and ensure that Texas community associations function properly, are well governed, properly managed and protect property values for the benefit of all residents.

In performing this mission we seek meaningful legislation that protects the community association lifestyle, which continues to permit community associations to provide amenities and services to homeowners without imposing additional financial burdens on owners. At the same time, we take into consideration the need for transparency in the operation of community associations and owners' desire to exercise more direct control in matters pertaining to their community association.
