We have several opportunities at Salem Middle School on our PTA Board of Directors. The only elected officers of this local PTA shall be a President, one or more Vice President(s), a Secretary, and a Treasurer. No PTA member shall serve in more than one elected position at a time. Upon taking office, each elected officer must be a member of our local PTA.
Officer positions require an application and letter of interest, a nomination ballot [submitted by peers or the nominating committee], nomination from the floor at a General Meeting to fill a vacancy, or at the start or end of a new school year.
Applications are reviewed by existing board members, the nominating committee and SMS Principal, and interviews are performed prior to a vote to fill the vacancy. Interested individuals are encouraged to read our NCPTA bylaws, speak with current PTA members, and shadow existing members in the role(s) of interest.
To ensure adequate coverage throughout the school year, all elected Executive Committee Officers are expected to attend all monthly meetings and scheduled events, even when “your” SMS students are tracked out.
If any SMS PTA Board meetings, events or needs conflict with your personal schedule, we ask that you communicate those needs at the least, 2 weeks in advance or earlier if possible, to enable the other members of your team to prepare and cover your area of responsibility.
We understand that things pop up and availability can sometimes change without notice. To minimize chaos in those unexpected events, we ask that all BOD members communicate any needs in advance and plan accordingly.
