Do you know someone, especially a Mandarin speaker, who would make a great PTSA officer?
This year we created a dedicated and effective PTSA, thanks to the enthusiastic, grassroots efforts of parents like you. Your involvement will provide momentum for another great year.
This is a sincere request for you to support and strengthen our PTSA by nominating yourself, and/or others, with the talents, experience and motivation to best fill our officer positions.
Training is provided, and our unelected board and committee directors provide much support.
The PTSA Nominating Committee is currently accepting nominations for 2015-16 Executive Committee Officers:
• Vice President
Some officers are willing to return for a second year (the term limit), but it would be ideal for them to share their responsibilities with co-officers, especially Mandarin speakers. Not one of our current officers is a native Mandarin speaker, so it’s challenging to connect with many of our Mandarin-speaking parents. It’s also become clear that we need either a President fluent in both English and Mandarin, or Co-Presidents each fluent in one or both language(s).
To be eligible for election to any of the above positions, candidates must have a member of a PTSA/PTA at least 30 days prior to being elected.
If you are qualified and interested in any of the positions, and/or know a PTSA member who might be, please let us know. We need all nominations by March 31.
The officer nomination form is available in the office or on our website.
More information about each position is available in the BMDL-PTSA Duties of Officers document on our website: http://www.bmdl-ptsa.org/ptsa-forms.html
Elections for next year's officers will take place at the PTSA General Meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 23, at 6:00 p.m.
If you have any other questions, please direct them to a member of the nominating committee, including Joe Pham at 206.390.1893, firstname.lastname@example.org, and Didi Seth-Frye, email@example.com
