General Board Information

Our mission at Guilford County Council of PTAs is making every child's potential a realty. We are a powerful voice for all children. GCC of PTAs strives to serve as a relevant resource for families, communities and schools. Most importantly, we are a strong and dedicated advocate for the education and well-being of every child.


(The bylaws outlined in this document should be used by PTAs or PTSAs at every school to guide their leadership, governance, and operations. These bylaws are similar to (but still separate from) bylaws that govern the GCCPTAs.)


While presidents have specific powers delegated to them through bylaws and policies, the president's chief role is to help guide the board. The board of directors is the core team responsible for meeting your PTA’s/PTSA goals and fulfilling PTA’s mission.

 A well-running, informed board makes a president’s job a lot easier and makes a PTA or PTSA more effective.

Most local PTA boards have at least four officers; a president, a vice president, a treasurer and a secretary. Information about the basic roles of each of these officers is in the bylaws.

Your board also contains chairs of committees such as Membership, Audit, Nominations, Reflections, and Advocacy. NOTE: Under Section 8.1 ("Standing Committees"), every PTA must establish an Audit Committee, an Advocacy Committee, and a Nominating Committee, the roles of which are explained in Sections 8.2, 8.3, and 8.4.

Together the entire board works as a team to reach your PTA or PTSA's goals. TIP: For a smooth running board, be sure to share this board section with your PTA’s board members.
