what is the nominating committee?
The charge of the nominating committee is to recognize and recruit the most qualified people available for elected PTA positions as defined by the local PTA or council standing rules. The members of the nominating committee have a tremendous influence on the future of the local PTA or council, making it the most important committee in PTA. Having qualified people step into leadership positions in a local PTA or council or at the state level will ensure success for many years into the future.
WHEN IS THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE ELECTED?
The Nominating Committee must be elected by members at a Membership Meeting (1st Monday of every month at 9:30 a.m.) at least 30 days proceeding the election of officers. See calendar for exact dates.
WHO CAN SERVE ON THE COMMITTEE?
Members of the Nominating Committee must be PTA members. The council president may not serve on the nominating committee, nor may any school or district administrator serve on the nominating committee within the district where he or she is employed.
