school employee and PTO board member conflict?

7 years 6 months ago #160961 by HELP!
What if all of the members are employees? except for one that were previous laid off from the school? Also, money is counted, deposited, and distributed from the school's bookkeeper (who is also on the PTO board.) No election ever advertised?

Hi HELP,

Not trying to be funny here, but this is a PTO at your school? Are the members also parents? How long has it been since there was an election?


Thanks,

Yes. They are all parents. I ve been asking around about election. ..no one has an answer..I have never seen a notice for election. not much of an effort to spread the word in the community...just candy sells and membership fees. Just seems like there's room for bias and no checks and balances..The group does not reflect the demographic of the students.

Hi Help,
Can you find out if the group has bylaws? It likely established bylaws at some point -- perhaps even before this current crop of officers. You can check to see what the procedure is supposed to be for elections and then request that the group follow the election process as outlined in the bylaws.

Let us know how you make out,
Rose

We have an employee who is part of the exec board and I don’t believe she should be as it is creating conflict of interest on so many levels .
