Who is an MCCPTA Delegate? Every PT(S)A President and up to two named MCCPTA delegates from each local PT(S)A unit; that is, up to three representatives per school. Plus, all members of the MCCPTA Board of Directors.
Delegate cards will be sent to local PT(S)As at their schools upon receipt by the MCCPTA office of dues payments for a minimum of 25 members. Delegates are not/not required to have their Delegate Cards to vote until our November DA; see our STANDING RULES for details.
Regular MCCPTA meetings (Delegates Assemblies or DAs) are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the school year. The business meetings usually start at 7:30 PM (please watch for changes of start time), and are preceded by anMCCPTA Presents! program. The DAs are held at the Carver Educational Services Center in Rockville, and are open to all PTA members.
The privileges of introducing motions and voting are limited to the voting body, consisting of the MCCPTA officers, area vice presidents, cluster coordinators, and committee chairs, the president or alternate and two accredited delegates or their alternates from member PTAs/PTSAs. The monthly meetings provide an opportunity for delegates to present ideas, debate issues, become better informed, make personal contacts with other PTA leaders, and vote on MCCPTA actions. The conduct of business is governed by STANDING RULESadopted by the delegates.
Reminders of monthly Delegates Assemblies will be announced via our e-mail list and on this website. Meetings will be cancelled if Montgomery County Public Schools are closed for weather or other emergency conditions on the scheduled meeting date.
