The Texas Lyceum is comprised of a Board of Directors from throughout the State. These 96 men and women have demonstrated leadership abilities not only in their own community, but also across the State. They are active, involved and interested; they are eager to contribute their talents and time to the betterment of Texas.
The Lyceum Board of Directors meets four times each year in quarterly meetings across the state. The topic and format of each meeting depends upon input from the Board of Directors but usually addresses timely topics through presentation by experts and interaction between Lyceum Directors.
Once a year, Directors and Alumni nominate individuals to be elected as Directors for a three-year term. A Director may be re-elected to a second three-year term. Candidates are reviewed by a Nominations Committee who present a slate of nominees which are then voted on by the current Board of Directors. Nominations are considered only after a candidate has completed an application and has two letters of recommendation, one from a Director or alumnus and/or one from a third party. The list of 2013 Texas Lyceum Directors and Alumni is available to help you identify those members with whom you may be acquainted.
Membership applications AND letters of recommendation are due on or before September 1, 2013 for consideration in the Class of 2014. The Class of 2014 membership application will be available soon!
Each term begins on January 1st of each year. No person's first term as a Director may begin on or after that person's 46th birthday.
In recruiting and accepting new members to the Board of Directors, the Texas Lyceum strives to achieve broad diversity among its membership in satisfaction of the goal of bringing together diverse opinions and expertise focusing on national and state issues, and to emphasize constructive private sector, public sector and individual responses to such issues.
