Maryland PTA Proposed Bylaw Amendments
for the 2017 Annual Convention
Understanding Requirements for Bylaws Submission
We are living in a world where we can actually complete work from devices no larger than the palm of our hands. In the past 10 years alone there have many advances in technology and it takes time for many of us to catch up. Keeping this in mind, one of the goals of the Bylaws Committee is to deliver the tools to allow our membership to utilize the most current technology while maintaining the integrity of our documents. We will research and test the tools available and hopefully find the right fit for MDPTA. Your recommendations are encouraged and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your cooperation and adherence to current practices while we work to improve the bylaws process. Below are a few important items:
