History
In 1996, key leaders from primary and secondary schools, community colleges, higher education institutions, state government, major corporations, state government, the military, and the telecommunications industry worked diligently towards the formation of the Texas Distance Learning Association (TxDLA). This non-profit state chapter of the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) was the first organization in Texas to bridge the boundaries between the diverse range of professionals interested in the field of distance learning.

According to the Founding President, Mr. Don Foshee, at the first statewide meeting held on January 30th, 1996, the goal of the organization was to "...provide an accessible clearinghouse of useful information that can be shared by ALL distance learning practitioners and planners, and which is non-biased, timely, and transcending the special interests which today provide only fragmented pieces of the big picture." Since its establishment, the Texas Distance Learning Association has grown and matured under the leadership of a dedicated Executive Committee, Board of Directors and many hard working members. The group facilitates the sharing of information, services, expertise, research, and peer networking among its constituents.
