The Vice President for Student Activities is elected by the membership of Texas Music Teachers Association. The VPSA presides as chair of the Student Affiliate Committee. The Committee adheres to TMTA Bylaws, the Standing Rules, and the Policies and Procedures set by the SA Committee and Executive Board.

Voting members of the Student Affiliate Committee consist of the VPSA and activity coordinators. All chairs, assistants and committee members are also members of the SA Committee. Members of the Committee are expected to attend Committee meetings and participate in Student Affiliate convention activities and programs.

Names of all SA appointees must be submitted annually by the VPSA to the TMTA Executive Board for approval. All appointments are for one year with a maximum tenure of three years.
