The TCDA Executive Board wishes to publicly express our support for our BBIAPOC community.


The TCDA Board of Directors and members are responding to efforts to redefine ways in which TCDA can ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion for everyone.  As a result, the following committees have been formed and will work toward this end.
