PTA as an Employer

When considering a project requiring paid personnel, carefully review the following information before making a decision. Becoming an employer is a major, ongoing commitment for a PTA and therefore is discouraged. Each PTA project is unique and the applicable state and federal regulations change periodically. The PTA may not hire a voting member of its board as an employee or independent contractor. This is considered a conflict of interest. (See Conflict of Interest Policy and California State PTA Bylaws, Article IV, Section 6.)
