SEND IN YOUR LOCAL UNIT OFFICERS It is time to email the list of your local unit's 2014-2015 officers to email@example.com. Please include the name and number of your PTA, your new officer's names and email addresses, their title, and the name of the PTA in which they are a member if they are not currently a member of your PTA. Please be specific about title - for example if a VP has a specific function such as membership, legislative, family and community engagement (formerly outreach), or program be sure to include that information. When we receive this information, these new officers will be added to the email list that receives Leadership News as well as information on training, updates, and instructions for the member registration process which we will begin sending in June.
Please note that you don't need to identify your new officers on the membership enrollment database, just email the list to the state PTA office. However, if you have already identified your new officers on the database, you do not need to send an email as well. Thanks for your help as we make sure your local unit continues to receive the information it needs from the state PTA office.

Seattle School Traffic Safety Committee Seeks New Members The Seattle School Traffic Safety Committee is accepting applications for new members to help make walking and biking to school in Seattle safer and easier. The volunteer board, which was created by the Seattle City Council in 1975 to improve traffic safety for all of Seattle's school children, plays an influential role in implementing Seattle's School Road Safety Action Plan. The board advises the Mayor and City Council with respect to school traffic safety, including adult crossing guard locations, school traffic signs and signals, school safety patrols, bicycle facilities, sidewalks and student traffic safety education.[ download / view file ] Board members serve a three-year term, with an opportunity to serve a second term. Members must be Seattle residents and may not be city employees. The board meets the fourth Friday of each month from 9 to 11 a.m. typically at Seattle Public Schools headquarters with occasional field meetings at school sites or schools crossings. Ideal committee members may include parents of school children, frequent walkers and bikers, people interested in pedestrian or bicycle encouragement and those with expertise in child injury prevention.
The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the City's boards and commissions. Women, young persons, seniors, persons with disabilities, sexual and gender minorities, persons of color and immigrants are encouraged to apply. Interested Seattleites should submit a resume and cover letter explaining their interest via email by 5 p.m. on May 9, 2014, to Brian Dougherty at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, call Brian Dougherty at (206) 684-5124 or send an e-mail to the address above.
