Attends Monthly 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.
