Bylaws and Standing Rules   Leave a comment

Teravista Bylaws

Per PTA guidelines, we are required to post our Bylaws and Standing Rules for thirty days prior to a general meeting when we are asking our membership to approve changes. We are updating our local part of the dues from $5 to $5.50, so that PTA dues will be $10 moving forward, instead of $9.50. We are also modifying our standing rules to reflect the new distribution of committee chairs under our two vice presidents.
