Who manages and makes decisions for the forum?

As of 8/1/2019, TIAA-FORUM became a registered Colorado Association. We have applied for and received a 501(c)(3) non-profit designation by the IRS. Our organization’s bylaws can be viewed here. In accordance with those bylaws, we have a Board (including organization officers) and an Admin Team


The tiaa-forum.org board is elected from the community membership and is responsible for maintaining the organization, paying the bills, and setting policy and priorities for the community.

Admin Team

A rotating administration team is responsible for the general maintenance and evolution  of the site, including the forum software.

We intend to manage and operate the site in accordance with AA principles. Where decisions affect the forum community as a whole, the admins will, at times, create a poll and ask active members for their input.

What is the the purpose of this site/forum?
