You just got elected to a PTA board. What is the first thing you should do? Read your PTA unit bylaws. Your bylaws are specific to your PTA. You’ll find out important information such as:
When are your association meetings?
What are the duties of my position?
Who can sign checks?
How much money can your PTA spend for unbudgeted items in between association meetings?
Also, notice the date of your bylaws. Bylaws should be updated at least every three years. If your bylaws are older than 2012, volunteer to be on the Bylaws Committee to get them updated.
