Good Morning! I'm the new vice president of PTO at my son school and we are just getting our organization up and running. I was wondering were there any tips for a new PTO and new vice president for the first time.

Congratulations! Vice president often is a job that becomes what you make of it. Often, there are no strongly defined duties other than filling in for the president when she's not available to chair a meeting. That can be both a challenge and an opportunity. On the opportunity side, it allows you to find projects that fit your particular interests and skills, whether it's organizing activities, helping with communications, working on organizational details, etc.

Check out the article What Do Vice Presidents Do? for some tips and resource links. Also, check out our resource page for vice presidents. Good luck!
