Open Nomination for PA Officers Due April 17

Anyone with a child at EVCS is automatically a member of the Parent Association, welcome to come to monthly meetings, and responsible for approving the PA’s annual budget. But much of the event organizing and fundraising — as well as decisions about what programs to fund — is spearheaded by the PA Executive Board, including elected officers and standing committee chairs.

Elected officers are the president, treasurer, and secretary. A vice-president may also be elected, or two people may be elected together as co-presidents. Each officer serves a one-year term, starting July 1; the term limit for each officer position is two consecutive one-year terms.

There is a great opportunity this year for parents who have not been a part of the Executive Board before to become much more involved in the Parent Association.

Here’s how the process works. Nominations for PA officers are being accepted now through the next general PA meeting on Wednesday, April 17 at 6pm. You can nominate any EVCS parent for any position — and you can even nominate yourself. Nominations will be officially closed during the April 17 meeting, and elections will take place one month later at the May 15 PA meeting.

You can submit nominations using the form distributed to all students; in person at the April 17 PA meeting; or using the online form below. (Descriptions of each officer position follow the nomination form.)
