Nominations and Elections

The nominating committee plays a central role in the life of a PTA because its decisions shape a unit’s future. Its main focus is to identify potential candidates for the elected positions on a PTA board for the upcoming term.

That’s why members of the nominating committee should reflect the school community, drawing on members from different neighborhoods. Understanding PTA’s mission and policies as well as how a PTA operates is also important.

The school principal, or a faculty representative appointed by the principal, if not an elected member of the nominating committee, serves in an advisory capacity.
