Local officers graphic

There are eight (8) requirements, recorded and tracked by Maryland PTA which must be fulfilled to maintain the good standing of each local PT(S)A and the Council, effective July 13, 2013.

PTA(S)A presidents should work closely with their treasurers and other board of directors members to complete them in a timely manner every year. AACCPTA leadership monitors the status of these requirements using spreadsheet provided to AACCPTA by Maryland PTA. These AACCPTA officers and volunteers are ready and available to lend guidance and help.

All documents must be submitted to the appropriate government authority (if required) and a copy sent to Maryland PTA. No copies are required to be sent to AACCPTA except your local officer contact form. A brief explanation of each requirement is provided below.
