The Baker Elementary PTA Executive Committee proposes the following bylaw amendments. They were first announced at the general membership meeting on March 30, 2017. A general member vote will be held on Saturday, May 6th during the annual Spring Carnival. Please bring your PTA membership card.
Article VI: Section 1.
“The officers of this PTA/PTSA shall consist of… 1 first vice president and 1 second vice president;”
Reasoning: A mandatory change to come into compliance with Georgia PTA bylaws.
Article VI: Section 8.
“There shall be a nominating committee…who shall be elected by this local PTA/PTSA at a regular general membership meeting, in February, at least one month prior to the election of officers, as outlined in Article VI, Section 3.
Reasoning: To update the wording for clarification.
Article XVI: Section 1.
“The fiscal year of this PTA/PTSA shall begin on June 24 and end on the following June 23.”
Reasoning: The Cobb County school calendar has moved up several weeks since the bylaws were originally written. Moving the date will allow future PTA committees a more appropriate length of time for planning.
