Fircrest PTA Steering Committee Forming

I am looking for people who are interested on being on the steering
committee for Fircrest PTA which is forming.

WE will be working with the Regional Director of Washington State PTA
in setting up our new  PTA unit.

This is what we will be working on:

ORGANIZE STEERING COMMITTEE This committee will work with Region
Director (RD) and Shoreline Council PTSA representative to consider
the purposes and needs of a potential PTA.  This groundwork enables RD
and potential PTA representatives to fill out the application for
affiliation, a Washington State PTA (WSPTA) document.  (Steering
Committee can also work on:  Standing Rules; Composition of Board of
Directors; Job Descriptions, etc.)

This is VERY exciting to be working on this and I hope to find
committed advocates to participate.  Remember, Fircrest School does
not stop at age 21 – we are a life long learning facility and our
residents need the support and advocacy which the PTA organization can
help us with.

Do not be afraid – there is much support and back up to help us 
organize and stay on track!! 

Once we have this, we progress to:

APPLICATION FOR AFFILIATION When completed and approved by RD, the RD
sends this to WSPTA Executive Committee for final approval.  N.B.:
You will have 60 days from the date of approval of the application to
hold your first charter meeting.

ORGANIZING NOTEBOOK Once the application is approved, the RD delivers
Section I of this notebook to your contact person.  This section
details steps to becoming a non-profit association and PTA.

HOLD A CHARTER/ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING This is the meeting at which the
group formally votes to affiliate with WSPTA.  Minimum number of
charter members is 25. The RD has detailed instructions for organizing
the meeting.  You will receive Section II of the Organizing Notebook
at this meeting.

COMPLETE THE ORGANIZING PROCESS The charter period is 45 days from the
date of the charter meeting.  You will receive Section III of the
Organizing Notebook after the following has been received by WSPTA:
1) “Affiliation agreement” – fully executed; 2) “President/Treasurer”
card – fully completed; 3) Enrollment sheet with minimum of 25
members, including contact info; 4) A check for membership fees for
all members listed.

This is VERY exciting to be working on this and I hope to find
committed advocates to participate.  Remember, Fircrest School does
not stop at age 21 – we are a life long learning facility and our
residents need the support and advocacy which the PTA organization can
help us with.

Do not be afraid – there is much support and back up to help us 
organize and stay on track!! 

Please forward to anyone who you think may be interested.  Let me know
