So You Want to Be on the PTA Executive Board

Does the PTA Executive Board feel like a secret society? Ever wonder what we actually *DO*?¬†Well, it’s no secret, and we would love for you to join us!

As with all PTAs, we are governed by a set of rules (our bylaws) that require certain requirements to be met. This includes hosting meetings, timely communication, financial reporting, and auditing, soliciting membership, and more. If you are interested in possibly running for one of these positions, please contact parlia@earhartpta.org.
