New Election Policy
The National PTA Board of Directors adopted new Election Policy Sept. 30, 2020. An immediate implication of this policy change is that all candidates who wish to be elected to serve in a national capacity must submit their letter of interest during the LOI open season in the fall of each year.
All candidates will be vetted by the NLRC that will then determine a slate of candidates as in previous years. Those who are not selected may then elect to run from the floor as self-nominated candidates and may declare that interest as they might have done in previous years.
No one can nominate themselves if they have not already placed their name in consideration with the NLRC as that is now a prerequisite for self-nomination.
Candidates are selected based on their competencies as demonstrated in their Letter of Interest application, interview and reference feedback. For a description of our election process, review both the Governance Policy Manual and our National PTA Bylaws.
