“Alki! For the last two years I have served on the Nominating Committee, meaning that I helped put together the new board for the next year. I enjoyed this process because it gave me a chance to learn about what is inspiring people in our community. When those conversations aligned with board positions, great! But much more important was that these conversations helped us understand how the PTA can be a more effective venue for the ways that people want to support the school.
Do those conversations sound intriguing to you? YES?! Then please join us on Wednesday at the PTA General Membership Meeting, where we will be establishing this year’s Nominating Committee. You can learn more about the Nominating Committee, and join if you are interested! You’ll be helping us to shape the future of the PTA Board! This is your school. This is your community. Jump in and help us make it better.”
-Mike Uehara-Bingen, Alki PTA President
Duties of the nominating committee
The charge of the nominating committee is to recognize and recruit the most qualified people available for elected PTA positions of President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary. The members of the nominating committee have a tremendous influence on the future of Alki PTA, making it the most important committee in PTA.
Members of the nominating committee must be elected by the members during this Wednesday’s Alki PTA General Membership Meeting (March 3rd at 6:30-7:30PM).
Committee work includes holding confidential meetings, reviewing nominations, interviewing candidates, and searching for the best qualified candidates. The nominating committee is not charged with filling the non-elected positions on the PTA board of directors, but recommendations are appreciated. When their work is complete, this committee provides a written report to the membership that names qualified nominees for the elected positions on the PTA board of directors.
Are you interested?
Join us on Wednesday and raise your (virtual) hand as we vote in this year’s Nominating Committee! If you have questions, please reach out to former committee chair, Mike Uehara-Bingen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Advocacy Chair Davina Dilley at email@example.com. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
