USATAA Structure

USATAA is the organization of professionals and other interested persons living in the United States of America who subscribe to the theory and practice of Transactional Analysis.  Those who live outside of the USA may join as non-voting Associate Members.

USATAA is governed by a Coordinating Council consisting of five General Members elected by the membership, with participation of the Advisory Board, consisting of Regional Representatives serving six geographical regions. Both General Members and Regional Representatives serve staggered three-year terms.

The Coordinating Council allocates organizational duties among Council members. Currently, the functions are General Coordinator, Coordinator of Communications, Coordinator of Finance, Coordinator of Education, and Coordinator of Programs. Additional non-voting ad hoc members may be appointed by the Council on an annual basis to provide assistance and advice. The immediate past General Coordinator serves as an ad-hoc member for a three-year period following his or her term in office.

USATAA is a grassroots organization which encourages local and regional groups to convene and to propose priorities and activities. For example, the Eastern Regional TA Association is an affiliate of USATAA and the Southwest Region has formed a group called the Southwest Transformers, which holds an annual Southwest Gathering as well as other programs.

Members who wish to participate in committees, activities, or decision-making are invited to contact any of the council members or your regional representative. Your voice will be heard.
