Voting and Election Information


Voting Delegate Credentials Process for Convention

Each year local PTAs and councils have a chance to send representatives to cast their vote at convention. Items that will be voted on this year include amendments to the Georgia PTA Bylaws, and the election of the 2019-2021 Georgia PTA Board of Directors.

All PTA members are eligible to be credentialed to vote in the business portions of the Annual Georgia PTA Convention.  The Georgia PTA Bylaws state:

See chart to below determine how many voting delegates to which your local unit is entitled.

When registering, please keep in mind the number of delegates your local unit PTA has.  If you are unsure, please view the attached document  which lists each local unit and how many delegates are allowed.  Your PTA may and is encouraged to send additional attendees to Convention above the number of voting delegates your unit is entitled. Even though they will not be eligible to vote, the convention is a valuable experience for all PTA members and they will still receive training and workshop experiences.  If your local unit or county council submits registration forms with voting delegates that exceed the total number allowed, we will contact the President of your unit to make the appropriate corrections. If you have any questions, please contact the office by emailing office@georgiapta.org.

Upon presentation of your membership card at the registration desk at Convention, each voting delegate shall receive their voting delegate card, which is the card that signifies their voting status during this convention. Delegates have the opportunity to vote on decisions that affect Georgia PTA and local PTAs, including their leadership and organizational structure. It is very important to ensure that every local unit is represented at convention.
