As an organization focused on music, the TAA has many recognition programs for its musicians (e.g., Anniversary Awards, Founder' Award, Hall of Fame). In contrast, the President's Award recognizes other valuable contributions to our organization. Each year, the current TAA President may select one or more individuals to receive this award.
