The Consortium’s Leadership Committee plays a critical role in shaping and guiding the future strategy of TEGAC. Members of the Leadership Committee participate in quarterly conference call meetings, plan and participate in the Texas Education Grantmakers Advocacy Day at the Capitol during legislative sessions every odd year, and contribute expertise and ideas to the current and future work of TEGAC. Furthermore, because the Consortium does not have a formal board, the Leadership Committee handles many of the responsibilities normally managed by a board of directors.
