PTO not in status

Hi s,
Bylaws that provide the basic rules and procedures that run the group, even if the group is not a 501c(3) nonprofit group, are just that -- the rules that run the group. This shouldn't become a legal issue. If a group's bylaws went into unusual territory of excluding certain community members (as an example), then they would be heading into legal/illegal area.

I would guess the bylaws are not legal since the PTO is not a nonprofit?

In most states, you can get back in good standing by filing a few years' worth of annual paperwork and paying a small fee. Check with your state's commerce department (which may have another name).

Elections must be held according to the bylaws, unless the bylaws are illegal; without knowing what they say, I can't offer much more advice about that.

I am the PTO President for my school, this is my first year. I just found out that we are not in status with the state. What do I need to do?
Also our Bylaws are very outdated and is not clear on when an election needs to happen. At the last PTO meeting a few parents convinced the principal that an election needed to happen for all positions even though that is not what the by laws state. I don't know what to do about this?
I feel if we are not in status with the state none of this should be happening?
