9. How do I find out about open board member positions?
PBC Board & Officer positions are open to any Piedmont Hills High School parent and do not require previous experience. If you are interested check out our Officers & Roles tab or contact any current officers prior to the May election meeting. The official term of all board and officers shall be July 1 through June 30 of each year.

12. What binders and files are needed to be kept by a board member?
It is helpful to 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 binger contains a summary of the position, a calendar or timeline for your job or event, the feedback you receive, and anything else you think would be helpful to your successor. 
 
13. When volunteering how much money can I spend (budget)?
All Board members have a budgeted amount of funds. The treasurer gives the committee chairs their budget at the beginning of the school year. If you plan to spend more than the budgeted amount, prior approval from the Treasurer or President is required. 
 
14. How do I get reimbursed for money spent while volunteering?
If your purchase has not yet been made, send an e-mail request to the Treasurer. The Treasurer will prepare the check, the President or Vice-President will sign off and send payment directly to the vendor.

If your purchase has already been made, fill out the reimbursement form and send it to the Treasurer along with all receipts. A check will be prepared, signed, and issued to you.

The PBC 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 would like to be reimbursed for your expenses, we will let you know the next steps after our incorporation process.
