PTA Executive Board Committees and What They Do
PTA Presidents provide leadership and guidance for all committees. They ensure that all members receive training and assistance in their positions. They preside at all meetings as well as representing P.S. 116 to the region/district. The presidents are designated as the authorized signers for P.T.A. checks, contracts, and authorizations for payments. They are members of the S.L.T. and Safety Committee. The P.T.A. Presidents also provide direction and support for the P.T.A. Exec Board and all school parents.
Recording Secretaries record information such as meeting minutes. They get approval on notes to be posted on the P.S. 116 website.
Treasurers oversee the budget committee. They maintain a record of income and expenditures and provide financial support to drive events and support 116. They prepare checks for the President to sign and are custodians to the unit's finances.
Financial Secretaries support the Treasurers. They assist with tax returns, making deposits, and distributing receipts for all donations.
Communication VP's are responsible for communication information within the Executive Board as well as the parent body at large. They create and distribute a calendar of events, handle correspondence, and can assist other committees with flyers. They inform the community at large via eBlast, text blast, social media and they create and update the P.T.A. website.
