Proposed Amendment of Bylaws

Proposed Amendment of Bylaws

1. Article V Section 2A. Local PTA Dues Amount

Current Bylaw: Annual dues for each member shall be three dollars ($3.00) for the local portion of dues plus state dues as determined by Texas PTA and national dues as determined by National PTA.

Proposed Change: “Annual dues for each member shall be five dollars and fifty cents ($5.50) for the local portion of dues plus state dues as determined by Texas PTA and national dues as determined by National PTA.

Discussion: The correct amount for local dues now is $5.50.  The change to bylaws will accurately reflect that the local dues are $5.50 and not $3.00

$10 Total Individual Dues = $5.50 Local Dues + $2.25 State Dues + $2.25 National Dues

2. Article VI Section 2,3,4 5B; VII S1A, IX S3, X S1 President Elect:

Current Bylaw: Current bylaws do not provide for a President Elect position.  The Texas PTA now allows for this position: President Elect (Articles VII, VIII, X, XII): PTAs may choose to add President Elect as an (elected) Officer position. Note: This option restricts the term limit to one year for both President and President Elect and adds the President Elect as an ex-officio member to every committee. In order to elect a President-Elect, PTAs must adopt the required Bylaws amendment prior to their spring elections the year before the President Elect model takes effect.

Proposed Change: Add the above President Elect Position to our bylaws.

3. Article VIII Section 1B. Meetings

Current Bylaw: The association meeting held in February shall be the election meeting.

Proposed Change: “The association meeting held in May shall be the election meeting.

Discussion: This meeting is already held in May, so we are changing the bylaws to reflect what is currently being done.
