Each spring we elect the Executive Officers for the upcoming year. The Nominating Committee is charged with finding candidates for these positions.
Per WSPTA Bylaws:
- Section 5 Nominating committee – local PTA and council
- A. A local PTA or council nominating committee of three members shall be elected by ballot at least 30 days preceding the election of officers. The election may be by voice vote if only three candidates are nominated. A plurality vote shall elect. If a vacancy on the nominating committee occurs, the board of directors of the local PTA or council may appoint a replacement. The local PTA or council nominating committee is discharged from service after the officers are declared elected.
- B. Eligibility requirements for local PTA or council nominating committee members are as follows: 1. The members of the nominating committee shall have been members of the local PTA or a local PTA in the council for at least 15 days preceding their election. 2. The local PTA or council president may not serve on the nominating committee. 3. A member may not serve more than two consecutive terms on the nominating committee. 4. For a local PTA, the school principal may not serve on the nominating committee. 5. For a council, a school or district administrator may not serve on the nominating committee within the district where he or she is employed.
- C. The local PTA or council nominating committee shall submit to the members a signed report at least 15 days prior to the election stating the name of one or more candidates for each office to be elected. A position may be listed as “open” if the committee is unable to find a qualified candidate. Additional nominations may be made from the floor with the consent of the nominee only when the election is held during a meeting
