Upcoming PTO Elections

The CMES PTO General Assembly Meeting and Officer Elections will be held Wednesday, May 28th at 3:00 PM in the gym. This will give members extra time to decide if they’d like to run for one of the offices, and will give all PTO members a chance to attend the Build Crofton High School Rally at the Board of Education at 7:00 PM on May 21st.

Prior to the Officer Elections, there will be a vote for amendments to the PTO Bylaws, and following the Election you will receive an update on PTO events for the remainder of the school year.

As previously posted in the Mustang Messenger Newsletter, the positions up for election are:

PTO President – Preside over meetings, coordinate the work of PTO Offices and Committees, be a member ofall committees, etc.

PTO Vice President of Membership – Motivate CMES members to join the PTO, create a MembershipDirectory, create and distribute PTO Membership cards, coordinate volunteers for all PTO events, etc.

PTO Treasurer – Keep custody and accurate account of PTO funds, present financial reports, file taxes, etc.

These positions are held for a 2 year term (school years 2014-2016).

Also, our PTO Vice President of Ways and Means resigned with one year left in her term, so the position of Vice President of Ways and Means is up for election – the position is for 1 year (school year 2014-2015) which will fulfill the full 2-year term.

Our PTO Secretary has resigned with one year left in her term in hopes of taking a new position on the PTO Board, which leaves the position of Secretary up for election – the position is for 1 year (school year 2014-2015) which will fulfill the full 2-year term.

PTO Vice President of Ways and Means – Organize and run two major fundraisers (one in the Fall and one inthe Spring), organize the Basket Raffle and Silent Auction at the Winter Festival, organize monthly Spirit Nights with local vendors.

PTO Secretary – Keep a record of documents and record meeting minutes, type and distribute minutes for each meeting, organize the PTO master calendar.

If you are interested in running for any of these five positions or have any questions, please email the CMES PTO Nominating Committee (Margaret Oh, Fern Kucinski and Ragnhild Erdely) at cmesptoasep@gmail.com by Friday, May 16 at 12 Noon. All nominees will be featured in the Mustang Messenger Newsletter each Friday until the Election. The PTO Board will also be taking nominations from the floor on the day of the election.

Sincerely,

CMES PTO Board
