Everett PTSA Council 7.3 is seeking three (3) volunteers to serve on its 2022-2023 Nominating Committee.
The Nominating Committee is a special committee that holds the key to a successful PTSA. It is responsible for presenting the best qualified candidates to serve as the elected officers who will lead Everett PTSA Council during next (2021-2022) PTA term. Effective candidates for Nominating Committee: • Are familiar with the needs and goals of Everett PTSA Council. • Are enthusiastic about Everett PTSA Council's mission, vision, and goals. • Are willing to work and devote considerable time to furthering the purposes and programs of Everett PTSA Council. • Possess tact, integrity, discretion, and the ability to hold their own counsel. • Have the courage to express their ideas and defend their convictions • Demonstrate sound judgment and skill in evaluating potential nominees. • Are capable of understanding and maintaining complete confidentiality. • Represent the diversity that is present in the community and student population. • Should be elected on merit and ability – never on popularity.
Members of the Nominating Committee are eligible to become nominees for elected office. No person may serve on this committee for more than two consecutive one-year terms. For a Council Nominating Committee, the candidate must be a member of a local PTA in the Council for at least 15 days preceding his or her election to the committee.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to be an Everett PTSA Council Elected Officer or other Everett PTSA Council Board member to be on the Nominating Committee. We encourage any interested and qualified PTA/PTSA leader within Everett PTSA Council (in Everett School District) to volunteer for this vital role that will help shape the future of our Council!
There are a few criteria that must be met to be considered for any elected position. Potential nominees must be at least 18 years of age, a current member of any PTA for at least 30 days preceding the election to office, must be willing to attend required training, and must have held an elected position for at least one term with any PTA/PTSA.
Any qualified person who is not on the Nominating Committee's slate of candidates and would like to run for a Board position has the right to be nominated if interested, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org..
Our Council will also have other great opportunities available for next term, too! Those positions include FACE/DEI, Reflections, Shoe Fund, Special Education PTSA liaison, Member-At-Large: North Region of District, Member-At-Large: South Region of District, Region 7 Representative, and Awards Celebration/Recognition Chairpersons (Ad-Hoc Position). A copy of the Nomination Committee Report will be posted on our Council Webpage.
If you or another PTA leader you know are interested in joining Council for the 2023-2024 term, you will have an opportunity to submit a recommendation at our Council Nomination webpage.
