Student committees within PA-TSA are a great way for any student to get involved at the state level. The five committees are the Communications and Promotions Committee, Conference Sessions and Activities Committee, Corporate Outreach Committee, Membership Committee, and National Service Project Committee, . Each committee is chaired by an elected state officer and vice chaired by a dedicated member of the association.  Any PA-TSA member can sign up to participate on the committees which hold video meetings throughout the year and contribute in various ways to the state delegation. Applications are due on November 1st, 2017 at 11:59 PM.

Student Vice-Chair: TBD

Adult Chair: Jason Kofmehl

With this year being PA-TSA’s 40th year anniversary, the Communications and Promotions Committee has two primary duties. Over the course of the year, the committee will develop promotional media for the 40th Annual State Conference and produce the PA-POST, a seasonal newsletter presenting information to the membership from the State Officer Team. This committee will give you an opportunity to produce a product for all the members of PA-TSA to view and enjoy. If you enjoy designing with programs such as Photoshop or Illustrator, making promotional videos, or developing social media posts, this is the committee for you. Because this is PA-TSA’s 40th year anniversary, we are looking to go big on marketing this year’s State Conference activities through social media and promotional videos. To complete this task, we will be hosting weekly web meetings to plan videos, social media posts, and the PA-POST. High school and middle school PA-TSA students are welcome to join. Applications are due November 1st, 2017 at 11:59 PM.
