PTSA Meetings

There are generally three types of meetings: General Association Meetings, Executive Board Meetings, and Committee Meetings. General membership meetings are held at least twice each school year. Executive Board meetings are held monthly. See below for meeting schedules and guidelines.

New ideas are always welcome. See the New Business Procedures on the left to learn how to bring recommendations forward.

This is the general meeting for all members. Speakers may be scheduled, and there is a social time with possible refreshments. Voting actions by the membership at large may occur at these meetings. Each meeting is limited to one hour, and the business time at this meeting will be extremely restricted. Any new business will likely be deferred to the Executive Board Meeting.

Have an Idea for PTSA?

A Bright Idea Light bulb

If you have ideas or new business, it is recommended that you attend an Executive Board Meeting. All PTSA members are welcome as this is the preferred venue for PTSA business. The best recommendation is to contact the PTSA president to place the item on the agenda prior to the Executive Board meeting. Items can be brought up at the General Association Meetings as well.
