All VP's are elected positions and require attendance of board meetings.

 

VP Membership
Your primary goal is to renew past members and get new ones. It requires coordination between PTA and school, as well as processing membership applications in a timely fashion. You will also be asked to staff back to school night or any other events where members can sign up and get info.

 

This person works closely with the treasurer to report new members as they come in and update the roster in a timely fashion.

 

There is some creativity involved in this position also, as you will be asked to create membership packets, flyers, and anything else that might help gain new members. You are required to attend trainings offered by the Texas PTA either via webinars or at Summer Leadership Series Conference.

 

It’s your job to make sure people understand that being a member is not the same as being a volunteer. We will not hound members to be volunteers. I promise.

 

VP Programs

Your primary goal is to plan educational programs for the Callison Community – parents, students, and staff. There is a lot of coordination with the school, as well as with outside vendors.

 

This person may be asked to assist the Reflections chair or the Healthy Lifestyles chair, as these are program initiatives of the National PTA. You are required to attend trainings offered by the Texas PTA either via webinars or at Summer Leadership Series Conference.

 

Think about what programs you would like to see at Callison and make it happen. It’s amazing to see the smiles on faces when the kids love a program. Remember Dinosaur George? That’s a program!

 

VP Fundraising

Your primary goal is to promote and manage all PTA fundraisers. This position requires planning, promoting, and reconciling all fundraisers. There is a lot of coordination with the school, as well as with outside vendors. You are required to attend trainings offered by the Texas PTA either via webinars or at Summer Leadership Series Conference.

 

Show me the money! You bring Dinosaur George to Callison.

Treasurer

Your primary responsibility is to balance the books. Some other important responsibilities include being a signer on the bank account, keeping plans of work for all budget items, keeping all board members in check when spending money, and being responsible for the checkbook. You are required to attend trainings offered by the Texas PTA either via webinars or at Summer Leadership Series Conference.

 

We need someone who is not afraid of numbers and can reimburse a board member on the fly. You will be writing a lot of checks. Did someone say hand cramp?

 

Secretary

Your primary goal is to take notes at the board meetings and turn your minutes into the President. You are required to attend trainings offered by the Texas PTA either via webinars or at Summer Leadership Series Conference.

 

This is an easy position. Seriously, taking notes!

Get Involved

Looking to make an impact at Callison? We different levels of involvement. From volunteering for one hour at the carnival, to serving on the Executive Board. We want you at whatever level you can donate. There's power in numbers and the more involvement we have, the lighter the load on everyone. See what interests you and if you have questions contact us.

This is an elected position and requires attendance of board meetings.

 

You are the hub of the board. All positions report to you at the board meetings. You are sometimes the final say in a decision or the first person your board turns to in a crisis.

 

This position requires a good communicator, as you will be communicating not only with your board, but also the school staff, teachers, parents, and outside vendors. It is your job to make sure each board member is keeping up with their duties.

 

You will conduct meetings, both executive board meetings and general PTA meetings. You are required to attend trainings offered by the Texas PTA either via webinars or at Summer Leadership Series Conference.

 

It’s fast-paced and messy sometimes, but it’s the best way to get to know the school staff, parents, and the community. Plus, your kid will think you’re a rock star. Seriously.

This is the best position to learn about the PTA. This one is for you...new to Callison parents.

Chair Positions

They range from a year-round position like volunteer coordinator, to carnival chair. The chair is in charge of a specific committee, if there are committee members, that handles a specific event or job duty. Here are a list of some of the positions we would like to fill:

 

  • Volunteer Coordinator

  • Hospitality Chair

  • Box Tops Chair

  • Yearbook Chair

  • Reflections Chair
