THAC's committees were designed for members who want to be engaged in THAC's mission and goals. Each committee has unique functions and may appeal to a variety of professionals. If you are looking to get involved, meet fellow THAC members, and work closely with our Board of Directors, then please read the following committee descriptions. You can contact the Committee Chairman directly or send a general inquiry email to Board@TxHAC.org for any questions.

The Networking Committee fosters collaboration between members and guests. The committee’s goals are inviting new guests, welcoming guests at events, personal follow up with each new member, and connecting members with appropriate opportunities. Additionally, the networking committee works closely with other committees to support their strategy, growth, sponsorship, and resources.

The Membership Committee is responsible for identifying and recruiting prospective new members by contacting and inviting them to attend THAC meetings. We are responsible for setting up the sign-in tables at events, greeting and checking in members and guests, facilitating registration and payment for new and renewing members, and recording the attendance of members and guests at meetings.

The Philanthropy Committee manages the full spectrum of THAC’s philanthropy pillar, from having the passion and heart for community service to serving as an ambassador. Our goals are to build awareness for the selected non-profit, raise funds, and coordinate activities to support each nonprofit's mission. Each quarter ends in with a Happy Hour with a Twist event, which is planned by the Philanthropy committee. We also work closely with the Corporate Sponsorship and Networking Committees.
Corporate sponsorship Committee
The Corporate Sponsorship Committee fosters relationships with local and national organizations that are interested in partnering with THAC. The committee members coordinate with the Sponsorship Chair on identifying potential Sponsors, developing & maintaining relationships, and securing funds to support ongoing THAC operations and philanthropy initiatives.

The Volunteer Committee works with members who wish to serve the organization in some capacity, which may vary from single events to ongoing commitments. Assignments will depend on needs, and may range from setting up chairs and cleaning up meeting space to filling in at the check-in desk and making calls to members.
