About TAC

The Texas Society of Architects maintains an active government relations program to promote the interests of its membership. Through the Texas Architects Committee (TAC), an unincorporated political action organization allowed under Section 527 of the IRS Code, the Society raises funds for contributions to candidates running for public office. The profession’s only state PAC supports those who demonstrate leadership, responsiveness, good judgment and a willingness to work with architects advocating for safe, beautiful, sustainable environments. 

TAC Leadership

The Society’s Executive Vice President James T. Perry serves as TAC campaign treasurer, and TAC reports to the Texas Ethics Commission. The management of TAC is vested in 12 executive trustees elected by the TxA Board of Directors. Executive trustees coordinate the campaign to raise funds for TAC and determine the political candidates who receive TAC contributions.

Each TxA chapter is represented by one or more TAC advisory trustees, proportionate to the number of chapter members. Responsibilities of advisory trustees include: coordinating TAC fundraising within the chapters; providing executive trustees with an assessment of candidates for public office from chapter areas; identifying chapter members who have a business or professional relationship with state officials; assisting with delivery of TAC contributions to political candidates; and attending TAC meetings.
