The Texas Association of Appraisal Districts (TAAD) is an incorporated nonprofit association founded in 1981 by 123 original charter appraisal district members.

On October 2-3, 1981, 74 appraisal district board members, 127 chief appraisers and 161guests attended a conference in Dallas that ultimately led to the creation of TAAD. Hosted by the Dallas Central Appraisal District, Board Chair Earl Luna conducted the meeting with a stated purpose of “formation of an appraisal district organization.” By all accounts, it was a lively exchange of ideas and proposals. Conferees agreed to meet again in Austin in January 1982 during a statewide meeting of chief appraisers and directors sponsored by the State Property Tax Board.

From this meeting came TAAD. It would be governed by a set of bylaws providing for an executive board of 20 trustees (whose regions would be contiguous with those of the state’s Education Service Centers) and an executive committee of president, president-elect, vice president, secretary-treasurer and past president. Governance would be based on the “one district-one vote” concept, so all appraisal districts would have an equal voice in deciding the future of the association.

The charter member districts in 1982 were: Andrews, Angelina, Aransas, Austin, Bailey, Bastrop, Bee, Bexar, Bosque, Bowie, Brazoria, Brazos, Burleson, Caldwell, Cameron, Camp, Carson, Cass, Chambers, Cherokee, Clay, Cochran, Collin, Colorado, Comal, Cooke, Cottle, Crosby, Dallas, Dawson, Deaf Smith, Denton, DeWitt, Dimmitt, Duval, Eastland, Ector, El Paso, Erath, Fannin, Fayette, Fisher, Floyd Fort Bend, Franklin, Freestone, Frio, Gaines, Grayson, Gregg, Guadalupe, Hale, Hansford, Hardeman, Hardin, Harris, Harrison, Hays, Henderson, Hidalgo, Hill, Hockley, Hood, Hunt, Jack, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Jones, Kaufman, Kent, King, Lamb, Lampasas, Lee, Leon, Liberty, Lubbock, Martin, Maverick, Midland, Milam, Montague, Montgomery, Nacogdoches, Navarro, Newton, Nolan, Nueces, Orange, Palo Pinto, Panola, Parker, Pecos, Rains, Robertson, Rusk, San Augustine, San Patricio, San Saba, Smith, Starr, Stonewall, Sutton, Tarrant, Taylor, Terry, Travis, Tyler, Upshur, Upton, Uvalde, Walker, Waller, Washington, Webb, Wharton, Wheeler, Wichita, Winkler, Wood and Zavala.
