2.       How do PARENT BOOSTER CLUB board and officer positions get filled?

 

Any paid member can run for a board and officer position.  Any member interested in holding an office for the coming term shall be nominated and voted upon at the October Election meeting (3rd Tuesday).  The current officers will also help in soliciting nominees for each position available.

 

The current officers then seek out nominees for each board and officer position and will present a slate of candidates to the membership at the May PARENT BOOSTER CLUB meeting. Board and officers elections are conducted at the May PARENT BOOSTER CLUB meeting.

 

3.       How do PARENT BOOSTER CLUB committee chair positions get filled?

 

Once a PARENT BOOSTER CLUB board and officer are elected, the PARENT BOOSTER CLUB president for the following school year will begin seeking individuals to fill committee chair roles. If you are interested in a PARENT BOOSTER CLUB committee chair position for the following school year, you should look for announcements in the PARENT BOOSTER CLUB website or talk to the President-Elect in May.

 

4.       What are the basic and shared job responsibilities of board and officers and chairs?

 

-          Help to recruit and train your successor

-          Keep binders up-to-date; maintain good files

-          Attend PARENT BOOSTER CLUB meetings whenever possible

 

5.       What are the basic job responsibilities of board and officers?

 

All of the above, plus:

 

­   Attend board meetings scheduled as needed throughout the school year

­   Act as liaison between President and board and those Chairs who fall in to your subject area (e.g. VP needs to serve as liaison between PARENT BOOSTER CLUB Board / President and chairs of all events).

 

6.       What kind of files should I keep?

 

­   It is a great help if you create and/or audit a binder for your position and to have a short orientation when you hand it over to your successor. An ideal binder contains a summary of the position, a calendar or timeline for your job or event, your budget, vendors used, ideas you tried and liked or didn’t like, fliers you created, feedback you received, and anything else you think would help your successor to get a good start.

Frequently Asked Questions about Volunteering


1.        How much money may I spend (Budget)?

 

Almost all PARENT BOOSTER CLUB Board Members or Chairs have a budgeted amount of PARENT BOOSTER CLUB funds.  The treasurer gives the Committee chairs their budget at the beginning of the school year. If you plan to spend more than your budgeted amount, you need to get prior clearance from the Treasurer or President.  The President will put this on the table for approval.

 

2.       Reimbursement - In order to be reimbursed for expenses from your budgeted committee expenses, the reimbursement process is as follows:

 

If your purchase has not yet been made, send an email request to the Treasurer.  The Treasurer will prepare the check, the President or Vice-President signs and sends the payment directly to the vendor for you.

 

If your purchase has already been made, fill out the reimbursement form and send to the Treasurer together with all the receipts.  A check will be prepared, signed, and mailed to your home.

 
The PARENT BOOSTER CLUB is now in the process of incorporating as a non-profit organization.  Many Piedmont Hills HS volunteers very generously donate from their pockets as well as of their time. If you do want to be reimbursed for your expenses, we will let you know the next steps after our incorporation process.
