Membership Committee

The purpose of the Membership Committee is to identify strategies to increase membership and to serve TPS members in the best possible way. Committee members help to identify potential members and suggest marketing strategies and materials. Committee members also help to identify possible benefits and new services for TPS members.


Legislative Committee
The Legislative Committee members work with the membership on legislative issues to define TPS's position on those issues. The committee members are often asked to make Capitol visits to communicate information about TPS and our membership. 

Chair: C.M. Schade, MD, PhD
