Nominations for 2016-2017 PTA Executive Committee

Positions are open for the Executive Committee of the Cloverly ES PTA for the 2016-2017 school year. Following are the list of these positions. Our Cloverly PTA by-laws clearly outline that no officer can hold their position for more than two consecutive years. Five of the six current officers have reached their term limit, so we need to find their successors:

  • President
  • Vice President of Membership
  • Vice President of Fundraising
  • Treasurer
  • Corresponding Secretary

As per our by-laws, a nominating committee will be appointed which will process all nominations and bring them forth to our May PTA meeting for a ballot vote. For now, please start thinking early about your potential interest in filling any of these roles for the 2016-2017 school year. Feel free to make us aware of your interest by sending an email to – and don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to know more details about the duties associated with these positions by calling 301-922-0444. Also, if you plan to nominate someone other than yourself, please take the extra step to make certain that person is indeed willing to serve.
