Candidate Narrative

Scott Allen
Candidate for Nominating and Leadership Recruitment Committee

PTA has always faced challenges and opportunities and now is no different. We deserve leaders who can tackle those challenges head-on and grab those opportunities with a vision for the future and respect for PTA’s past. We need leaders who will connect with and harness the energy of our members to boost 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 individuals who understand PTA and can lead us into the future and (2) making sure that the NRLC’s process is well understood by all.  

Why this position? I am committed to ensuring PTA is as relevant for my two 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 identify people and ideas that when paired with practical solutions, strengthens PTA’s leadership in child advocacy and family engagement.

My experiences as a past state president, 2-term National PTA Board member, former Resolutions Committee member, past State Presidents’ Club leader, and now like you, a member volunteer are critical to understanding the responsibilities the NLRC has and the roles we’ll be finding people to fill.  When asked, you’ll find that other leaders will tell you that I do my homework, am willing to ask crucial questions, and come prepared - always looking out for the best interests of our Parent Teacher Association.

I humbly ask for your vote.
