2020-21 PTO Board Nominations

While this is an unsettling time in our world, with many unknowns hanging in the air, Westwood PTO is continuing to plan and prepare for the remainder of this school year and the launch of 2020-21, with as much normalcy as possible. Part of this preparation includes moving forward with 2020-21 Westwood PTO Executive Board nominations and elections. We have formed a nominating committee that consists of the following individuals:
Chair: Eileen Moidell (current assistant treasurer) – pto.assttreasurer.westwood@gmail.com
Jennifer Earl – jenkiko@hotmail.com
Nicole Hutchinson – nlkln@hotmail.com
Lisa Van Zuylen – lamurray77@gmail.com
Thank you to these ladies who have stepped up to serve in this role!
The committee is now accepting nominations for all six board positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, and Public Relations Representative. Descriptions of each position can be found in the Bylaws (scroll to the bottom of this linked page and click on the file) beginning on page 5.
*Important: In order for an individual to be nominated for a position, he/she MUST be a current PTO voting member AND have a child who will be in grades K-2 for the 2020-21 academic year. A nominee must accept the nomination to be added to the slate for elections. If you know someone who would be an awesome candidate, please email the above committee members with the individual’s name, the position you’re nominating them for, and their contact info (if possible) prior to April 14th. Think YOU would be an awesome fit? Nominate yourself!
*The nominating slate was scheduled to be presented at the April 14th Members Meeting at 3:45pm, with elections on May 12th at 6:35pm. If the closures of schools extends beyond April 3rd, PTO will work on a virtual platform to present nominees and hold elections electronically, in accordance with the Bylaws.
While this time is full of anxiety and unknowns, one thing feels true…the irony of this distancing is that we’re all in this together. Feel free to email with any questions/concerns. Be good to yourselves and each other.
Your PTO Board ❤
