Become a Member

Becoming a member of TAASA signifies joining the movement to end sexual violence in Texas. Our members include rape crisis centers, other organizations working with sexual violence-related issues, plus individuals and organizations who support our mission but don’t work directly in the field.

For more information please email Courtney Clark at membership@taasa.org or call (512) 474-7190 x37.

TAASA relies heavily on public grant funds. But these funds are narrowly restricted as to their use and cannot be used for a myriad of other activities, including legislative advocacy – an important purpose if we truly hope to make Texas safer. We rely on member support (in the form of membership dues and donations) to continue doing this valuable work all over Texas. Click here to sign up!

Annual Membership Meeting

TAASA will hold our annual Membership Meeting on June 6, 2017 in Dallas, TX. TAASA members, both Individual and Organizational, will have the opportunity to learn about and vote on all resolutions put forth by our membership. This is your opportunity to guide our work, and we welcome your input.

To be eligible to vote, your membership must be current as of Friday, May 5, 2017. If you don’t already know, take a moment to go to taasa.memberlodge.org and view your profile to see when your annual membership expires. If your membership expires prior to May 5th, 2017, you will need to renew in order to attend and participate in the Membership Meeting. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact our Member Liaison, Courtney Clark, at membership@taasa.org.
