It’s election time all over the town… Our EVCS Parent Association Needs You!

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, and/or two people may be elected together as co-presidents. Other offices can be shared, as well. Each officer serves a one-year term, starting July 1; the term limit for each officer position is two consecutive one-year terms.

Here’s how the process works. Nominations for PA officers are being accepted now.
You can nominate any EVCS parent for any position — and you can even nominate yourself.Nominations will be officially closed at 9:00am on Wednesday, May 18, and elections will take place Wednesday, May 18 at the morning PA meeting in the auditorium.

Nominate any EVCS parent — even yourself — online right now.
