We are always looking for volunteers to fill positions of committee chairs, co-chairs, apprentices or helpers. A few of the committees need an apprentice for the up-coming year (affectionately called a “shadow”) — someone to learn the ropes of the position in preparation for becoming a committee chair the following year.
Take a look at our list of committees and the brief description for each. If you are interested in helping on one or more of these committees, please let us know – there’s something for everyone!
If you haven’t volunteered before, no worries! Training opportunities are offered throughout the year. We have a Committee Chair Training session each Fall here at Cedar Wood when we start the school year.
In addition, we have many PTA resources available to us. Some training opportunities that the current PTA officers have utilized include:
WSPTA Annual Convention offers many training courses and discussions
Everett PTSA Council hosts trainings from time to time
Region 7-WSPTA hosts an annual training conference attended by many PTA leaders each August, prior to the start of school. Trainings offered by Region 7 this past August 2017, which members of our PTA Executive Board attended:
6:10 – 7:20 pm – Class Session 1
- Foundations of Family and Community Engagement
- Branding and Marketing your PTA for success
- Parliamentary Procedures
7:30 – 9:00 pm – Class Session 2
- Goodbye Binders: Leveraging Digital Tools for PTA Business
