We are currently accepting self-nominations for the three (3) Nominating Committee positions. Interested candidates can self-nominate by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is a Nominating Committee?
The Nominating Committee consists of 3 individuals who serve the vital role of recognizing and recruiting the most qualified people available for elected PTA positions. The members of the nominating committee have a tremendous influence on the future of the local PTA or council, making it the most important committee in PTA.
Who can serve on it?
With the exception of the PTA President and school Principal, anyone who has been a PTA member for at least 15 days can be elected to the Nominating Committee.
Membership Goal Status - 29%
Goal: Every NHE student is represented in PTA by at leastone important adult in their lives.
Status: Currently 29% of our students are represented. We are 1/4 of the way there!
There is NO obligation or expectation to volunteer or attend meetings. (But we do LOVE to meet members and find fun opportunities for those that want to help!)
Membership assistance is available. We do not want funds to stand in the way of those that want to join. Please email email@example.com to request a confidential scholarship.

And remember to ask your employers about their Corporate Match Plan. Many local employers will match the donation you make up to 100%!
Every dollar contributed to our Pass the Hat fundraiser goes directly to support the programs offered by the PTA. A donation of $100 covers our spending per student, but any amount is appreciated. Every dollar counts!
We are a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization. All donations are 100% tax deductible. Our Tax ID number is 91-1208399.
