How to Apply:
Our Children Need You!
The PCCPTA Nominating Committee requests that all PTA members give thoughtful, careful consideration to their volunteer commitment for the 2015-2016 school year. If you are willing to share your time and talent to help “every child” in a Council role, please complete the letter of intent form found here or send your questions to the Nominating Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the Nominating Committee is working diligently to put forth the best possible slate of nominees for the elected offices, there are also many positions which will be filled by appointment later. Therefore, the more people who express a willingness to serve, the better prepared we will be to provide the leadership, services and programs to meet the needs of our PTA community.
To be most effective, Pinellas County Council PTA/PTSA leadership should be representative of all communities in the district. There are numerous opportunities to participate.
