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
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.
