Comités Asesores

TVC Advisory Committees

Purpose

Texas Government Code §434.0101 authorizes the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) to establish advisory committees.

An advisory committee is a collection of individuals who bring unique knowledge and skills which augment the knowledge and skills of the Commission to more effectively guide the organization. The advisory committee does not have formal authority to govern the organization; that is, the advisory committee may not issue directives that must be followed. Rather, the advisory committee serves to make recommendations and/or provide key information and materials to the Commission.

The Texas Veterans Commission established three Advisory Committees in accordance with the Texas Administrative Code, § 452.2. Additionally, all committees must comply with the Open Meetings Act.

  • Fund for Veterans’ Assistance Advisory Committee
  • Veterans County Service Officer Advisory Committee
  • Veterans Services Advisory Committee

Each committee is composed of nine (9) members. Committee members shall serve staggered 4-year terms (beginning January 1, unless appointed to fill a vacant/resigned position). Committee members shall serve only one term on the same committee. Once their term is over, they may apply for another committee.

Committee members are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the Commission. Each year at the 1st Quarterly Commission Meeting (normally held in November), the Commissioners approve appointments to the TVC advisory committees to fill the positions of those members whose terms are expiring at the end of that calendar year.

APPLICATIONS FOR THE ADVISORY COMMITTEES WILL BE ACCEPTED STARTING JUNE 1, 2024, UNTIL AUG. 31, 2024.
ANY APPLICATIONS RECEIVED SINCE SEPT. 1, 2023, WILL BE CONSIDERED IN THE SEPTEMBER 2024 SELECTION PROCESS.

Committee members will be required to sign non-disclosure and conflict-of-interest agreements before reviewing grant applications. Committee members found in violation of the nondisclosure agreement will be prohibited from evaluating grant applications and making recommendations to the Commission.
