​​Delegates Assembly


The Delegates Assembly is the body that bridges the council and local PT(S)As. Each local unit president and up to two (2) delegates represent their PTA or PTSA at these monthly meetings. 

The privileges of introducing motions and voting are limited to the voting body, consisting of the president or alternate and two accredited delegates or their alternates from member PTAs/PTSAs as well as the MCCPTA officers, the immediate past president, area vice presidents, cluster coordinators, and all MCCPTA committee chairs. 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 Rules adopted by the delegates, MCCPTA bylaws, and Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, 11th ed. (Da Capo Press, 2011).

A number of school-related groups have designated representatives to MCCPTA.  These liaisons may attend meetings—and participate in discussions if approved by the MCCPTA President—but have no vote. 

MEETINGS:The Delegates Assembly generally is held on the fourth Tuesday of the month during the school year at 7pm (locations will be announced). Meetings are open to all PTA members.
