Question: Board Conflict of Interest

We are currently revising our Bylaws. As president I would like to add a statement that would prohibit any current member of the school district's School Board from holding an Executive Board position. Does anyone have similar "conflict of interest" clauses?

I don't know of any groups that have that bylaw, but it would be fairly straightforward -- something like: Officers and board members of ABC PTO may not serve on the ABC District School Board.

I'm curious to know why you're concerned about that -- it doesn't immediately strike me as a conflict. In fact, I could see some positives in having a school board member as a PTO officer.
