PTA Leaders

Job Descriptions

Officer and chairman job descriptions have been developed by the California State PTA for use by unit, council and district PTAs. These guidelines are meant to assist officers and chairmen in their duties throughout the term of office. The list includes the required president, secretary and treasurer officer job descriptions and numerous others.

The job descriptions typically are distributed to members of the board-elect at the beginning of a term for planning purposes and are used with the updated procedure books forwarded by the outgoing officers and chairmen. PTAs are encouraged to develop job descriptions and procedure books for other PTA positions to provide continuity and sound leadership practices.

These job descriptions can also be found on our Online Toolkit.
