Election Guidelines

Elections are upon us. Delaware PTA would like to take this time to remind everyone that as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association that PTA is nonpartisan.  As such, Delaware PTA and its constituent associations never comment on, endorse nor support candidates for office. We support issues – not candidates. Our role is to engage and empower families to exercise their voice. We will do this by promoting voter turnout and working with local unit leaders to coordinate candidate forums in each district so that our families can make informed decisions when voting.

Upcoming Local Unit Elections

We have received a few questions on the election and nominating process at the local level. Delaware PTA is here to provide guidance and assistance for all local units. Just as a reminder, Article IV, Sections 2-4 of the local unit bylaws outline the local unit election cycle, term limits, and requirements for running for an elected position. Article IV, Section 7 outlines the process and timeline for establishing a Nominating Committee to promote open positions and prepare a slate of candidates to present to that slate to your general membership. All units MUST hold elections for all open positions.

This is just a reminder that the banks require a copy of the meeting minutes indicating which officers should be removed from the account and which officers should be added.
