Other 2021 Interim Session information
Interim Session is one of two annual meetings of the Academy’s Board of Directors, its councils, and committees. We have scaled back this year’s Interim Session because of the pandemic, but beginning in 2022, expect live forums for each of the councils and a Member Assembly to provide opportunities for TAFP members to guide the work of the organization.
