Dear Abernethy families,
Next year’s PTA Board Elections are coming soon, and we’re here to answer questions and help community members get involved. Read on for information about open positions and contact information.
The Abernethy PTA Recruitment Team
The Abernethy PTA Board is seeking nominations for new members! Most PTA positions are 1 or 2 year terms, so every year is an opportunity for new people to get involved. As PTA leaders, board members help nurture a school culture that reflects community priorities, so add your voice! Elections will be held at our PTA Community Meeting on May 16th at 6:30.
Did you know that there is a wide range of commitment levels for PTA board positions? From co-chairing an event that you love to remotely keeping tabs on statewide education advocacy efforts, coordinating the weekly Monday Mailer newsletter to taking checks to the bank, or distributing funds to mini-grant applicants, there are opportunities for participation that fit a variety of schedules and interests.
If you and/or someone you know is interested in joining the PTA board for the 2019/2020 school year, let us know by emailing the Recruitment team at email@example.com . Whether you are interested in a specific role or want to learn more about a variety of positions, we are here to help! You can also let us know if there is someone you think would be a great candidate, and we will be happy to reach out. If you’re a current PTA member interested in joining the recruitment/nominating committee, please let us know that as well. This committee is responsible for ensuring wide outreach to encourage broad representation from our community on next year’s PTA board, and is a short-term commitment (ends at the May 16th election).
