Nominating Committee

Please use any of this material to help you recruit parents to be on your Nominating Committee. Please update highlighted portions to match your Bylaws.

What is a Nominating Committee? The Nominating Committee (or NomCom for short) is a group of volunteer parents whose purpose is to seek out and recruit parents and teachers for PTA Board positions and Key Chair roles for the next school year.

Yikes! That’s way in the future… I am just trying to survive this school year! Yes, we know. : ) However, our PTA bylaws dictate that the Nominating Committee must be voted in by the General Association at our January meeting and post/publish the Nomination List 28 days before the April General Association meeting. Hence, the invitation to join. NomCom is here!

We are looking for parents from every grade level, including our incoming grade. The committee will include both experienced PTA members, as well as brand new parents and will have a total of 3 members with 1 alternate.

Why would I be interested in adding this to my plate? 
There are at least 3 great reasons…

  1. You may be interested because you seek a deeper connection with our school and with our community. By joining NomCom, you learn more about how the PTA supports both. You’ll learn about our events, programs, and activities, and you will learn more about the school’s curriculum, enrichment, and campus needs and how PTA works to fill in gaps. And…
  2. You will also be with a team of parents who are like-minded. And…
  3. This is also a short, time-defined service. No matter what, it will start on in January and end in March

If you don’t know anything about the PTA or about the school, and you want to learn more and this timeframe works, this is the opportunity for you.

Interested? If you are – or if you are a firm maybe, please contact the PTA Parliamentarian or PTA President. They would love to chat with you about this opportunity and answer any questions you may have; they will be co-hosting an Info meeting in the coming weeks. Thank you!
