Technology Student Association

Leadership

The TSA provides a number of excellent student leadership opportunities, including regional and state officer positions. Officers have the opportunity to gain valuable leadership experience, develop effective communication skills, and familiarize themselves with the workings of voluntary associations in the modern world.

In addition, many officer credit TSA with teaching them essential problem solving, critical thinking, time management, and team working skills. Did we mention that it’s a lot of fun?

“My leadership experiences in the Technology Student Association have certainly been the highlight of my education.” -Jason Dreyzehner, Past Virginia TSA President, National Officer

2020-2021 Regional Officer application

2020-2021 State Officer Application.  Due to Technosphere being cancelled, it has been decided that you need to email state advisor B.J. Scott at bscott@vsu.edu to request an application to run for state officer positions for the 2020-2021 school year.  This method is being used so that we can make sure that you understand all parts of the process for this election, and, it will also give us a better understanding of who we need to contact for applications since no one is in school during this time.  This will allow things to run smoothly from the beginning of this unique election process.
