It’s hard to believe that we only have a few months left of the 2019-2020 school year. As we begin planning for next school year, the PTO is looking for parents who are interested in taking on a leadership role within the PTO Executive Board. The nominations for each position and possible election (if more than 1 person would like a position) will be presented at the 9:30am, March 4th PTO meeting.
Our goal is to expand the board and ideally have 2 people in every position with the exception of President, President Elect, Member at Large (3 spots total), and Adviser/Past President. This way, responsibility can be shared between 2 people. The open Executive Board positions are as follows:
President Elect – act as an aide to the President; perform other duties that may be delegated; assume duties of President in her absence and assume the office of President at the end of the 20-21 school year.
Co-Vice President – Coordinate special projects that the PTO deem appropriate; assist the President as needed; be the coordinator for the Room Parents.
Co- Secretary – record the minutes at all of the meetings for the executive board and PTO meetings; report any correspondence received to the PTO and make the appropriate response. Perform other duties as needed.
Assistant Treasurer – work with the current treasurer on tasks such as receiving and disbursing monies administered by the PTO’s general fund and subsidiary accounts and keep records of these transactions; assist with developing the annual PTO budget; and assist the treasurer with other duties as deemed appropriate.
Member at Large (2-3 openings) – attend all scheduled Executive Board meetings; assist other executive board members and committee chairs with various duties as needed; may vote in all situations; present the views and opinions of different segments of the BES population.
If you are interested in any of these open Executive Board Positions, please let myself or any of the Election Committee Members know by 2/21. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me as well.
