To all Harborfields PTA Members –

The 100th day of school is this week and it is also time to start thinking about PTA elections for the 2019-2020 school year. Here is more information on the timing and procedures for the upcoming elections.

The application to apply for an executive board position for the 2019-2020 school year is now available. Also attached is a list of the available executive positions and their responsibilities. All positions, including filled ones, are open for nominations during the election period.

Applications are due to all Nominating Committee Chairs by April 8, 2019. To submit an application, please print the PDF application, fill it out, and send it in a sealed envelope to the individual PTA unit mailbox marked, “Attention: Nominating Committee Chair.”

Next month, each unit will have a meeting to nominate and elect their Nominating Committee. Each unit’s nominating committee will be comprised of members of their current executive board and general membership, as stated in the bylaws. Separate correspondence will be sent to the unit’s membership with more information.

If you would like to serve on the nominating committee, you must be present at the meeting. All paid PTA members, in attendance, will vote on the election of this committee.

Each unit’s proposed slate of officers, selected by the nominating committee, will be posted online on April 18, 2019, two weeks prior to the general membership vote on May 6, 2019. 

A nomination and election timeline with more details is attached. Additional general information is available on the NYS PTA Resource Guide: bylaws, procedures, nominations & elections.

If you have any questions please email: ptacouncil@harborfieldspta.org

Thank you,

Harborfields Council of PTAs
