New plans for Directory
The TAA has provided a Directory of CVs since the mid-1980s, initially as hard copy. In the 1990s we introduced an on-line version, which was re-vamped in 2004 and was linked to the new TAA website in 2011. The Directory has provided valuable links for consultant members, who pay a registration fee, and potential employers. However, numbers registering have declined in recent years. Moreover, it has relied on TAA engaging someone to convert the CVs to 'html' format and upload them to the website, as well as paying annual domain and hosting fees. We are therefore planning to transfer the Directory fully into the main TAA website, under 'Expertise', but based on members entering their own CV detail into an on-line proforma. As we will be able to abandon the old Directory domain and avoid uploading charges, the new system will be free to members. Being entered in 'html' format should continue to enable the Google search engines to pick up CV details and post them on the internet. We hope to have the new system functioning by August. Meantime, current CVs will be maintained on the Directory. If members have any queries, please email the Directory Editor.

Your CV will be presented as a downloadable WORD document and also as an html thumbnail summary, which will be picked up by the Google search engines and appear in subsequent Google searches.
The power of the TAA Directory
As all registered CVs are held in html format, the details are picked up by Google search engines and appear in web searches. If you enter your CV in the Directory, you will be amazed where your name crops up.
"The TAA Directory is an outstanding resource. I have consistently found it to be a very valuable medium for promoting my services. I recently ran 'Tanzania Sugar Reform' through a web search and page 2 provided the following results:
