In the face of current unprecedented events, there is no guarantee that traditional meetings will be able to continue. As a result, the Washington State PTA has recommended that all local PTAs consider modifying standing rules to include electronic voting.

As a result, we would like to add the following verbiage to Section 4 –Officers, Board of Directors, and Elections as subsection 8:

“Voting for officers or nominating committee will generally take place at a general membership meeting, but electronic voting will be permitted as the Board deems appropriate, such as on occasions where inclement weather, local and state emergency, or any circumstance prevents an in-person meeting.”

We will open voting in a Survey Monkey poll beginning on April 3, 2020. Please direct any questions or concerns to or, or leave a comment on our Facebook page for open discussion.

Thank you and stay safe!
