Thank you for considering a role on Redmond Middle School’s PTSA Board, chairing a position, or joining a committee. We really need all of you to step up for RMS in 2018/19!

Executive Board Member Positions (teal) are elected. Director Board Member Positions (yellow) are appointed by the Executive Board (as are Committees). Board members meet once monthly and attend 4 General Membership Meetings per year. Once a year, the Nominating Committee presents a slate at the general meeting and the membership (any PTSA member) votes on the Executive Board positions. The election for 2018-2019 was held at the May General Meeting on May 8, 2018.

We encourage and welcome more dads to our board and chair positions!

Most positions can be shared with a co-chair! Grab a friend or your significant other and volunteer together!

With any questions at all, please email our president we’ll be happy to track down any information you need about an opportunity.
