Greetings PTO Members! The Wards Creek Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is currently recruiting members for this year’s slating committee. What’s a slating committee, you ask? In a nutshell, every year the PTO Board is made up of volunteers (both parents & teachers/staff) who apply for a board position. In order to streamline the election process, our bylaws state that a slating/nominations committee helps read applications for board positions and recommends one person for each position. Here’s how the whole process works.
Step 1: A slating (nominations) committee is formed with a minimum of 5 members - at least 2 (outgoing) board members and 3 current PTO Members make up the board. The current PTO Board will choose the members of the slating committee from a pool of applicants.
Step 2: A call for applications is made – anyone interested in serving on the PTO Board next year is asked to submit an application.
Step 3: During the month of February, the slating committee meets to review applications for Board positions.
Step 4: At the March general PTO membership meeting, the slating committee officially recommends 1 applicant per position for next year’s PTO Board.
Step 5: At the April general PTO Membership meeting, these applicants are voted on by the general PTO membership. At that time, any person who was not slated for a position, but desires to run, may be nominated from the floor to run against a slated position.
Step 6: In the month of May, all board members voted in by the general PTO membership enter into a month of transition with the current board. At the end of the school year, the new board takes over and starts planning for next year!
If you are interested in serving on the PTO Slating (Nominations) Committee to help with the 2020-2021 PTO Board Member elections, please use this form to apply by 12 noon on Friday, January 31, 2020. You must be a member in good standing (remember when you joined PTO at the beginning of the school year and got that handy dandy discount card?? That means you're a member with currently paid dues! If you're not sure, you can always email us to ask....) You must also not be planning to run for a board position this year.
Serving on the slating committee will generally entail 1 (possibly 2) afternoon or evening meetings (depending on committee member availability) during the month of February. It is a very small time commitment. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at WardsCreekPTO@gmail.com. Thank you for your continued support of the PTO and we appreciate your willingness to serve!

There are eleven positions for election: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Treasurer, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Parliamentarian, Business Partner Liaison, Volunteer Coordinator, Room Parent Liaison and SAC (School Advisory Committee) Liaison.
Applications can be downloaded here. They must be submitted to the school in a sealed envelope labeled ATTN: PTO Slate Committee. Applications are due by February 22, 2019 at 6 PM. If you are interested in serving for the upcoming school year, please consider applying to join the board!
Also an important note - list all of the job roles you'd consider serving in. This is a wonderful opportunity to serve the school and we're not going to lie - we have a good time on the PTO Board :) You will make some amazing friends & have an inside view of all the hard work that it takes to make a successful PTO! We might be biased, but it's a great volunteer job!
