Registration is open!
Register by July 30, 2021 to be eligible.
To provide for the safety of our members, delegates, volunteers, and other attendees, Michigan PTA’s 2021 Annual Convention will be held virtually. This year delegates will have the opportunity to vote on proposed bylaws amendments (click here to view). Due to the limitations of conducting business in a virtual setting, however, there will not be debate nor amendments on the proposed bylaws amendments during the Convention. Instead, input, feedback, and voting on the proposed bylaws amendments are being handled differently.
If you have questions regarding these changes, please visit the Bylaws Committee: Question & Answer Session on Wednesday, June 23rd @ 7:00 pm. Join Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5830562083
There will not be an opportunity to make motions on suggested amendments during the General Session of the MIPTA Annual Convention on August 5th-8th. All suggestions put forth at the question & answer session and those received in email to firstname.lastname@example.org will be considered by the MIPTA Board of Directors.
To vote on convention business, you must be a member of the voting body of the annual meeting as defined in Article XIV, A. ANNUAL STATE CONVENTION, Section 3e of the Michigan PTA bylaws:
“The President or alternate, one additional delegate, and one (1) delegate for each fifty (50) members or major fraction thereof, from each Local Unit, provided the Michigan and National portion of membership dues has been received by the Michigan PTA Treasurer by April 28th preceding the convention.”
If you have questions about becoming a voting delegate, contact the PTA/PTSA/Council of which you are a member.
