Anticipated Committee Vacancies for 2013-2014
We are very fortunate that so many of our current Committee Chairpersons would like to return to their positions for the 2013-2014 school year, if reelected. We are also fortunate that other Members have stepped forward and expressed interest in leading committees next year, as well. Currently, however, there are several committees which no one has yet expressed the desire to lead. If you'd like to become more involved in our PTO, please consider lending your time and talents to fill the anticipated vacancies that are described below. The Voting Meeting will take place on Thursday, April 4th at 9:30 in the LGI. Please plan to attend if you'd like to be considered for a committee position. If you cannot attend the meeting, please submit your name to Debby Rhea at email@example.com, and the Board will nominate you in your absence. Thank you for your consideration!
