To vote on convention business, you must be a member of the voting body of the annual meeting as defined in Article XII, Section 2 of the National PTA bylaws. If you are not a member of National PTA Governance as defined in that section of the bylaws, you must fully complete your registration (including full payment) for the National PTA Convention by midnight (EDT), June 1 in order to be considered for state delegate status. If you have questions about becoming a state delegate, contact your state PTA.
The ballot will go live at 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on June 17 and all members of the voting body as previously defined will be notified by email. Voting will remain open for 24 hours, through 5:00 p.m. (EDT), on Friday, June 18. One or more rounds of run-off elections are probable, and voters should remain vigilant and check their email for notifications. If run-off elections are necessary for elected position(s), voters will be notified on Monday, June 21 by email. If additional run-offs are required, voters will be notified again on June 22 and, possibly, June 23. An email from National PTA will let voters know when all balloting is complete. Results for all balloting—bylaws, resolutions, and elections—will be announced June 26 during General Meeting 5 of Convention.
Eight Board of Directors Member Representatives are elected each year, and either two or three members of the Nominating and Leadership Recruitment Committee (NLRC) are elected each year based on a cycle defined in the National PTA Bylaws. National officers of the association are elected in odd-numbered years.
