State Historian Committee Chair

Pamela Elza

Welcome to TRTA’s 71st year! TRTA was formed on November 27, 1953. Local chapter anniversaries are acknowledged on the TRTA Facebook page and in The VOICE by calendar year. Each district has received a document with their local chapter histories. Updates and changes should be sent to the state historian.

Historian Responsibilities:

1.    Take photos at all events. 

2.    Preserve a record of activities and accomplishments, in writing, using a scrapbook or digital photos, and/or hard drive or thumb drive. 

3.    Preserve any published articles about activities as hard copies and digitally. 

4.    Share photos with technology person(s) so they can share on social media, website, and in newsletters.

Documents to help you with these responsibilities can be downloaded from the list at the bottom of the page.

Here are a few things to know about this year:

  • 2024-25 is not a convention year, so slides are not due this year. Directions as to what will be collected this year will be emailed out in the fall.
  • Please continue to take pictures of local events and meetings to share on Facebook and your website, and/or collect in some form of scrapbook, whether physical or digital. No pictures of children’s faces may be posted on social media.
  • If a local chapter or district would like training on working with photos, saving photos digitally, Facebook or creating a website, please contact the State Historian.
