The PTSA is seeking candidates for next year’s board officer and chair positions. We need your help — please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a board position. It is very important these positions are filled to keep the PTSA in good standing and so the PTSA can accomplish the mission of supporting Hoover Middle School.
At the February 10th PTSA membership meeting, the members of the Nominating Committee were elected by the membership. PTSA member Michelle Young was elected chairman of the nominating committee. Also on the nominating committee are Sandra McSweeney and Stephanie Ligsay. Thank you Michelle, Sandra and Stephanie!
The nominating committee will present a slate of candidates at the March
16th 22nd PTSA meeting. [UPDATE: March meeting moved to 22nd due to conflict with Hoover Orchestra Concert]. The election of the new board officers will be held at the April 20th PTSA meeting. Time flies, so please let us know ASAP if you are interested in a board position.
