Committees of the Tennessee Press Association

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE AWARE THAT THIS PAGE NEEDS TO BE UPDATED.   Doug Horne is in the process of appointing his Committee Chairs for 2018-19.   As soon as we have chairs and rosters, we will update this page. 8/17/18. Contact Robyn Gentile, member services manager, at with questions.

Whatever your area of newspaper expertise, TPA could use you on one of its committees! Committee membership is open to any newspaper or associate member.
The hard work volunteered by the more than 50 committee members makes our association one of the most active on both regional and national levels. Results from the committee actions are immediately evident in every facet of our industry, from successes in the state legislative arena to the development of high school newspapers to the availability of affordable training programs for our members.

Most of TPA’s committee chairs are appointed each July by the new TPA president. If you are interested in volunteering for a committee, please contact the chairman. There are currently eight active committees which are: Advertising, Annual (Summer) Convention, Audit, Circulation, Contests, Government Affairs, Journalism Education & Literacy, Nominating (past presidents only).
