On Wednesday, May 25th promptly at 4pm, the Crofton Elementary School PTA will be holding a special membership-only meeting for the election of PTA legislative board officers for SY 2016-17. The meeting will be held in the Media Center. We invite all SY 2015-16 PTA members to join us for the election promptly after dismissal, and to allow for maximum participation, students and non-school age children may attend. We ask that the children in the meeting be properly supervised by their parent or guardian. No absentee ballots or proxies may be accepted. Only registered CES PTA members may vote in this election.
Every year, the four legislative officer positions are open for election. Our by-laws allow for a PTA member to serve no more than 3 years in the same position. As of this email send, the following incumbents have decided to submit their nomination for re-election for SY 2016-17:
- President – John Juppe (incumbent)
- Vice President – Vacant
- Treasurer – Gary Heldt (incumbent)
- Secretary – John Saint Amour (incumbent)
If you are interested in submitting yourself as a candidate for any of the officer positions, please complete the PTA Candidate Application Form, and email it to Mr. Donald Bailey at DBAILEY@aacps.org by no later than Friday, May 20th at 3:00PM EDT. Only registered CES PTA members may be a candidate. Ideally, all officer candidates will apply in advance, so that we can make the membership aware of the pool of candidates. However, walk-in candidates will be accepted at the election meeting on May 25th (we ask that he/she come prepared with the PTA Candidate Application Form already completed.) Basic responsibilities for these roles have been provided for your reference.
The Nomination Committee is made up of the following PTA members: Mr. Donald Bailey, Mr. Chris Russell-Woods, Mr. Marc Severin, and Mr. Dennis Dauphin. Only registered CES PTA members may serve on the Nomination Committee. These three individuals have already confirmed that they do not intend to be candidates for this election. They will be charged with conducting the election procedures, including collection of Candidate Application Forms, validating that only PTA members are voting, tallying votes and announcing results. The Secretary will record the committee’s activities as part of the normal minute taking process.
