Committees

Fundraising - Manage the coordination of the PTO’s fund-raising activities.  The PTO has yet to determine what fundraising it will do, but depending on what events are chosen, this person may delegate lead volunteers to organize each event and would check in with each group to determine their needs and report to the board.  (Effort: dependent on number of fundraisers and volunteers)\


Membership - Organize the annual PTO membership drive and the on-going process to encourage membership. Maintain membership records. (Effort is primarily in August, September. 3-5 hours per month.  Minimal role after September.)


Compliance Committee  - Provide internal audit services for the PTO.  The Chair of the Compliance Committee will serve as the point of contact for any wistleblower complaints from members or non members and will look into the complaints and report any findings to the board.  (Effort:  Ongoing, as needed.)

Communications Manager - Manage communications and marketing for the PTO including, but not limited to PTO newsletters, website, bulletin boards, etc. (Effort:  Approximately 3-4 hours per month)
