Chair: Robert Elzner.
The Membership Committee’s foremost goal is to enhance relationships with current members and to expand our membership base to include more families with incarcerated loved ones.
The Legislative Committee represents TIFA members to the Texas Legislature, analyzes pending legislation, works for change in the criminal justice system, and informs our members on all things legislative.
The Communications Committee places particular emphasis upon increasing the availability of online and electronic information exchange, as well as exploring efforts to increase awareness through the media of TIFA as a support organization for families.
Chair: Rita Castro.
The Chapter Committee works with the TIFA chapters across the state and helps members organize new chapters.
