Selecting Nominees

The responsibility of the nominating committee is to select the best-qualified available person for each office. Submitting more than one nominee for an office is not advisable. If the committee should select two names for the same office, each nominee for that particular office must be advised and informed of the name of the other nominee.

Students who are willing and have the time may serve as officers in the PTA/PTSA. According to California’s Corporations Code and civil law, a student may serve in any PTA/PTSA office. All officers, adults and students alike, must perform duties of the office as outlined in the bylaws.
