Calling All Parent Leaders
Calling All Parent Leaders

It is time to begin the process of nominating qualified candidates for the open board positions for the 2017-2018 PTA Executive Board. We would like to invite our community to help with this important task. Being a parent (grandparent, caregiver) leader is an excellent way to give back to your child, their school, and our community (also looks great on a resume). The knowledge and experience you will receive as a board member will be equally as valuable to you.

We truly appreciate your help selecting candidates for the following positions: President-Elect, Vice President Communication, Treasurer, Secretary, School Directors: High School and Stewart School. To learn more about these positions or to nominate yourself or a potential candidate please contact, Pat Aprigliano at or click here.

Executive Committee
The Executive Committee of the Garden City PTA is responsible for overseeing the work of the PTA across all seven school buildings. It is a governing body made up of 15 officers. 

Officers serve two one-year concurrent terms, except for President-Elect and President (one-year terms). Two-year terms begin on July 1st and end 24 months later on June 30th.

The President-Elect oversees the work of PTA Standing Committees and maintains the PTA Policies and Procedures Manual. The President-Elect works closely with the president allowing for adequate training and preparation for the subsequent years responsibilities. The President-Elect succeeds the President after a one-year term.

Vice President Communication
The Vice President of Communications is the chair of the PTA Communications Committee. This committee is responsible for all internal and external communications projects and functions including newsletters, website, social media, print media, and other communication tools. The committee also maintains the PTA’s family and member database. 

The Treasurer, as authorized custodian of the funds of the association, receives and disburses all money authorized by action of the PTA. The treasurer will be responsible for all forms of financial reporting including overseeing the filing of the PTA’s tax return.

The Secretary is responsible for keeping accurate records of the proceedings of the PTA, including the minutes of all meetings of the Executive Committee and the official PTA calendar.

School Directors
High School and Stewart School
School Directors are the direct link to our membership. Directors bring the concerns and issues of their school and parents to the attention of the Executive Committee. School Directors work closely with building administration to oversee the work of the PTA in each of our seven schools. The director is also responsible to facilitate the work of school-based committees under the direction of building administration.
