Approving the Budget

In the spring, the board-elect develops the budget and presents the proposed budget for adoption to the current executive board and the membership at the last PTA meeting of the year. The association approves the release of any funds required prior to the next association meeting in the fall. This allows the board-elect the ability to cover routine summer expenses as outlined in the bylaws.

The PTA shall not assume any financial obligation in any one term of office that will be carried over into the succeeding term. The proposed budget must be presented to and voted upon by the executive board and recommended for adoption at the first association meeting each year. After the budget is adopted by the association, it should be followed closely in all financial transactions. Adoption of the budget does not authorize the expenditure of the funds.
