Meet The Board
Our board members are unpaid parent volunteers elected by a quorum of our paying members. We are required to have a President, Treasurer and Secretary. Each board member is required to complete approximately 6 hours of general and role-specific training each year. Board terms are two years in length and staggered to ensure continuity and stability. We follow the guidelines of Oregon PTA and National PTA.
