About National PTA Elections

National PTA elections are held at our annual convention. The 2021 elections will be held in Grapevine, Texas June 24-27. The Nominating and Leadership Recruitment Committee (NLRC) is now recruiting for the next election cycle. Learn more about the Letter of Interest process at

Candidates are selected based on their competencies as demonstrated in their Letter of Interest application, interview and reference feedback. The NLRC developed Competencies and Criteria for slated candidates based on a needs assessment and leadership feedback. For a description of our election process, review both the Governance Policy Manual and our National PTA Bylaws.
