A successful election is important to a smooth transition for a PTA from year to year. All members are invited and encouraged to get involved in this important process. Nominating Committees are elected by the membership, never "formed" or appointed.

Electing the Nominating Committee

Nominating Committee Duties

The nominating committee is responsible for recruiting the best-qualified PTA executive board candidates for members to approve by affirmative vote at the election meeting.

The Parliamentarian shall schedule the first nominating committee meeting and provide to the committee the required information on the nomination and election process. From there, the nominating committee shall:

Nominating Committee Meeting: The meeting may be conducted if a majority of the committee is present. (If a committee member cannot attend the meeting, notify the alternate. In the event that another committee meeting is called, that alternate member will continue to serve on the committee and the original member does not return).

Officer Candidate Qualifications

Review the executive board article of your PTA bylaws to determine the composition, eligibility, duties and number of officers that must be recruited. One nominee should be recruited for each office. In the event the nominating committee cannot recruit a nominee, candidates for that office may be nominated from the floor at the election meeting.
