Board meetings occur monthly. General membership meetings for all PTA members are held two times a year, usually in September and November (months may vary.) At the general membership meetings, PTA members can vote on budgets, changing standing rules, and vote for new board members — among many other activities. Your input and feedback is important on how the funds are spent.
