The following changes to the MMS PTA Bylaws and Standing Rules will be presented for a vote at the May 18th meeting



Removed 2 positions and their descriptions:  Directory Chair and Additional Community Awards Chair

Amended the Restaurant Night chair to read Restaurant/Spirit Night chair.  Bullet 2 of that position now reads: "be responsible for planning restaurant night fundraisers and spirit night fundraisers throughout the year."

Added the following position:

The Student Liaison shall:

  1. be a member of the Murphy Middle School PTA
  2. be appointed by the principal
  3. give an update at PTA meetings to provide a student perspective

Finally, added the following rule.  It is added as rule #15, so the following numbers were bumped up a number:

Rule 15.  No PTA student member may handle PTA money.  No PTA student member may serve as President.



Article V Membership and Dues, Section 2. Dues. Letter A

It currently reads: “Annual dues for each member shall be eight dollars ($8.00) for the local portion of dues plus state dues as determined by Texas PTA and national dues as determined by the National PTA.”


We are going to propose that it will be written as follows:

“Annual dues for each adult member shall be eight dollars ($8.00) for the local portion of dues plus state dues as determined by Texas PTA and national dues as determined by the National PTA.  Annual dues for each student member shall be four dollars ($4.00) for the local portion of dues plus state dues as determined by Texas PTA and national dues as determined by the National PTA."
