Voting at Convention

A voting delegate is appointed by each Local Unit. A voting delegate represents the Local Unit’s viewpoint on each vote. A voting
delegate must seek direction from the Local Unit on how the delegate should vote on each matter at convention. It will be imperative that each unit’s delegate(s) review and discuss the Local Unit Idaho PTA Bylaws changes up for vote with their members so that each delegate will be able to vote ON BEHALF OF THEIR UNIT during the general session at convention. This applies to all voting matters presented during convention.

Voting delegates vote with the consensus of a unit, only after the members of the unit have given their say. A delegate represents the vote of an entire unit.

The number of local unit delegates are decided upon membership numbers. Every Idaho unit automatically has two delegates. (President and one additional member) For every additional 25 members, that unit is entitled to one additional voting delegate. Please contact the Idaho PTA State Office if unsure how many delegates your local unit is allowed.

Attached is a credential card that must be filled out by the local unit president in order for the delegate to be allowed to vote at the state convention. Please be sure to print it, have the president fill it out and bring it plus your membership card to convention. This is a requirement in order to vote!
