Bylaws for PTAs in California

Bylaws are designed to help the group function in an orderly manner. The president shall assure that a copy of Bylaws for Local PTA/PTSA Units and California State PTA Bylaws is provided to all officers and board members at the beginning of the term of office. Each member is responsible for making a thorough study of them. A copy of the bylaws must be made available to any member of the association upon request. Do not post PTA bylaws on any website.

If a unit cannot locate the bylaws, a committee should be appointed by the president and chaired by the parliamentarian. Standard bylaws should be obtained from the state office for a nominal fee. Standard bylaws are pre-printed and provide blank spaces to fill in according to a unit’s needs and must be used. Computer printouts or retyped bylaws will not be accepted.
