***VIRGINIA PTA BYLAWS***
The *NEW* Bylaws Revision is finally complete and were ready to move forward with a more streamlined process than ever before. You will find all the information you need for a successful transition in this email. It is our hope this new process is beneficial to our local units.
These bylaws go into effect today, Wednesday, July 21, 2021, for ALL local units. You do not need to do any extra work, other than transfer all of your already approved bylaws items to the new Organizational Structure Form. There is one additional form to complete for your local unit records - Standards of Affiliation Agreement Form (SOA) - this will ensure that you can find your requirements for "good standing" all in one place. We also have SOA FAQs for you as well.
Bylaws Questions & Answers Training will be provided on Saturday, August 7 at 9:00am. This session will be recorded and posted on our website for those unable to attend.For any immediate questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your local unit will no longer be responsible for updating your bylaws, that process will be handled annually - if needed - at the Virginia PTA Annual Meeting. Our process to accept any amendments will remain as they have in past years with advance notice and the process to submit any amendments.
We have created a toolkit to help you engage all families but particularly OWL families to stay connected with your PTA! Click the link below-
