Affiliate Program Member Application

Affiliate Program Members are baccalaureate degree granting textile, apparel and allied programs seeking or aspiring to accreditation.  The program pays the non-refundable Affiliate Member dues of $500.00/year, with membership beginning January 1.  Dues are not prorated. 

Affiliate membership allows program participation in matters addressing issues in higher education that may have an impact on accreditation.  Each program identifies a Program Representative who becomes a member of the TAPAC Assembly of Delegates.  Members of the Assembly of Delegates have a voting role in electing members to the TAPAC Board of Commissioners and Standing Committees.  Members also have a voting role in amending the TAPAC Bylaws, Accreditation Standards, and Accreditation Policies and Procedures.
