In accordance with Washington State PTA regulations, the IVE PTA elects to its Board the positions of President, Secretary, Treasurer and VP of Communications (the "Executive Board"). The positions will be elected for a term of one year, and the elected officials cannot serve more than two consecutive years in that role. A person may nominate his/herself, or someone from the school community (administration, faculty or parent) may nominate a candidate.  Remaining board positions are not elected, they are appointed.

The nominating committee is responsible for managing the election process, from establishing the timeline and communicating the position criteria to delivering the final ballot at the April PTA General Session.

PTA Board Structure Reorganization for 2020-21 School Year


At the January 21, 2020 IVE PTA General Membership Meeting, the motion to reorganize the IVE PTA Board structure for the 2020-21 school year was brought forth, discussed and ultimately approved. This reorganization was proposed after a deliberate and detailed look at our current PTA Board model, PTA programming level, volunteer availability and was also compared with other local elementary school models in our district. Every organization must take a look at current models on a routine basis to ensure that they are running in the most efficient, streamlined and appropriate way for current circumstances, and this is what we are hoping to achieve with this reorganization moving forward.
