What is the Nominating Committee?

 

The charge of the nominating committee is to recognize and recruit the most qualified people available for elected PTSA positions. Having qualified people step into leadership positions will ensure success for many years into the future. 

 

Who can be on the Nominating Committee

 

The nominating committee is the only PTSA committee that is not appointed by the president. This committee is elected by the membership during a membership meeting (usually in February).

Members of the Nominating Committee must be PTSA members.​ The president cannot be a member of this committee, nor may any school or district administrator serve on the nominating committee within the district where he or she is employed. No person may serve on the committee for two consecutive years. 

The committee needs a balance of newer and more experienced PTA members, all of whom should be knowledgeable about PTA and who are:

  • Aware of qualified potential nominees
  • Familiar with the eligibility requirements and the qualifications necessary for the offices to be filled
  • Willing and able to devote adequate time to the responsibilities involved and maintain confidentiality.
