History of TAPSS
The group scheduled a campus-wide meeting and started planning a newsletter. Using the official Campus Directory the group pulled together their first mailing list.
The response for the first campus-wide meeting was so overwhelming that the original meeting room was changed to one that could hold the 120 people attending. Committees were established; constitution and bylaws were hammered out. The first monthly newsletter was sent to over 600 personnel.
By November of 1987 an official name was chosen and officers installed.
The next year, 1992, TAPSS held the First Annual Secretaries Day Luncheon at the College Station Hilton. In 1996, it was renamed the Staff Appreciation Luncheon.
The first year that TAPSS held all three of these events - the Annual Professional Development Conference, the Bosses Day Luncheon, and the Secretaries Day Luncheon - was 1993.
Staff Helping Staff, a TAPSS mentors program, was established in 1997.
