Who exactly has a vote?

2 years 6 months ago #172156 by missmiata99
Good morning all! I'm the new secretary on a PTO board of all newbies, aside from the President, the lady who does social media and the box top person (she was President, VP and other positions that weren't filled). The rest of us our new and basically clueless. I've learned the hard way, if you don't know, you don't know. In our by-laws dated 2009 it states, " The board shall consist of the officers of the organization and the chairperson or representative of each standing committee, and teacher representatives. The principal of the school or his/her representative shall be an ex-officio member of the board. The voting members shall be the board". The positions include - Chair, Co-Chair (they perform duties of the Chair if they are absent), Treasurer, Reporter, Volunteer Coordinator, Community Sponsor, Teacher Support, Bilingual Liaison. Included in our volunteer handbook dated 2016-2017 is an attachment of the positions of the board and a job description. There is not a position listed for any standing committee or co-chairs. The attachment listing the positions is clearly a copy because the font is different. So, the question is, do the people who sit on the board, that do not have a position listed in the attachment, have a vote? Right now, the President is in charge of everything and it's a major issue. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi there,
From the information you provided, it sounds like members of the board would have a vote.
