Candidate for Nominating and Leadership Recruitment Committee
Challenges and opportunities are always present and now is no different for PTA. We need leaders who can face those challenges and grab those opportunities with vision for the future and respect for PTA’s past. Leaders who will harness the energy of and engage our members to ensure the viability of our association. As a member of NLRC, I’ll dedicate myself to this “Human Resource” arm of PTA by (1) recruiting and nominating those individuals who understand PTA and can lead us into the future and (2) making sure that NRLC’s process is well understood by all.
Why this position? I am committed to ensuring PTA is as relevant for my 2 grandsons as it was when my children were growing up. I’ll use my background, knowledge, skills, and the investment made in me by PTA to find the absolute BEST, most qualified candidates to lead our association. My professional work as a manager in Human Resources and business process improvements is focused on identifying people’s skills and knowledge, helping them to reach their highest potential, and ensuring processes are effective. My approach will engage our membership to surface ideas and people to pair with practical solutions so PTA continues as the leader in child advocacy.
My experiences as a past state president, former National PTA Board and Resolutions Committee member, State Presidents’ Club leader, and, like you, a member volunteer are critical to understanding the roles and responsibilities the NLRC will be finding people to fill. If asked, you’ll find that other leaders will tell you that I'm someone who does his homework, is willing to ask crucial questions, and comes prepared - always looking out for the best interests of our Parent Teacher Association.
I humbly ask for your vote.
