Leadership of the Tennessee Watercolor Society

Our organization is led by a board of directors, which consists of elected officers, the three immediate past presidents, members-at-large and all committee chairpersons.

Our primary officers – president, vice president, secretary and treasurer – are elected every two years by the membership at the organization’s biennial business meeting, which is held during opening events of the TnWS Biennial Exhibition.

To efficiently address member needs, the TnWS membership is divided into the following geographic divisions:  Region I-Memphis, Region II-Nashville, Region III-Chattanooga, Region IV-Knoxville, and Region V-Tri-Cities. The president appoints a contact to represent each region who acts as a liaison to the larger organization. Regional contacts coordinate requests and program ideas through the vice president.

The organization also has a historian and maintains several committees, including membership, workshop, exhibition, newsletter and by-laws. Other committees are appointed by the president as needed.
