Here are the open positions:
- Co-President (Executive Vice President–Membership)
- VP of Fundraising
- Financial Secretary
If you would like to learn more about any of the open positions next year, please email PTA Chris Lum and Ashley Fitting at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have several committee and coordinator positions open for next year.
**Per 501c3 rules, we MUST have a President, Treasurer, and Secretary in order to function as a PTA.
