Leadership Begins with the Nominating Committee
A PTA can be no more effective than its leadership.
The Nominating Committee is a special committee and holds the key to a successful PTA.
Its responsibility is to present the best qualified nominees for office.
An election of Nominating Committee Officers for the LHJH PTA will be held at the October 27th General PTA Meeting. If you are a PTA member and would like to serve on this committee, you will need to attend the general meeting and have another PTA member nominate you at the meeting. Likewise, if you know of someone that would be willing to serve, please be prepared to nominate that person at the general meeting. The committee shall be composed of 5 members and 1 alternate. We would like to have a good representation of officers from each of the feeder elementary schools.
Schedule and conduct confidential committee meetings based on the availability of all committee members.
Solicit suggestions for nominees from the PTA membership.
Contact prospective candidates during committee meetings.
Make committee decisions by ballot and majority vote.
Treat all candidates in a fair and consistent manner.
Submit a report of slated officers.
Present the report at the election meeting.
