Advocacy Director

Area D Vice President

Please use this form to officially self-declare. The deadline is February 15, 2024, at 11:59 p.m.

WSPTA Seeks 2024-2026 Nominating Committee Member Candidates

February 15 is also the deadline to self-declare your intention to run for a seat on the WSPTA Nominating Committee.

Every two years, the Washington State PTA membership elects at least three members (but no more than five members) to serve on the WSPTA Nominating Committee for a two-year term. The next elections will take place at the 2024 WSPTA Convention and Annual Meeting from May 17-19.

This is arguably the most important committee, as the work done informs the leadership direction of the association. It works best with a diverse group of volunteers who can develop a diverse slate of candidates for members to elect. We are looking for candidates from across the state with different backgrounds, cultures, ages, and experiences.

Members are encouraged to be a part of this important process by self-declaring their intent to run for election to serve on this important committee. The application form and Declaration of Good Faith form must be submitted by February 15 and may be found here.

More information may be found in the WSPTA Policy Manual, in Section 7.1. and in this blog post.

Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on February 15, 2024.
