BoardMeet your TPS Board of Trustees

All of the members of the Board of Trustees are Texas public servants, keenly aware of the issues that local governments face regarding their insurance needs. Our mission will always be to provide the best combination of pricing and service possible.

- Chairman of the Board, Scott Payne

The individuals who serve on the TPS Board of Trustees are in many ways unsung heroes of local government in Texas. They take their responsibilities very seriously, and spend countless hours safeguarding TPS on behalf of schools, cities, counties and other local entities because they believe our services are vital, and because they believe that competition in the market is the best way to insure that local governments get the best pricing possible for their coverage.

These men and women serve without pay or other compensation, participating in numerous meetings each year, dealing with volumes of documents, financials, budgets and other matters, and making many policy decisions in an ever-changing insurance market.

So if you know or meet a member of the Board of Trustees, thank them for their service. They don't ask for thanks, but they earn it nevertheless.
