Parliamentary Procedure & Bylaws
Parliamentary procedure is a set of rules for conducting orderly meetings that accomplish goals fairly. Benefits of parliamentary procedure include courtesy, maintenance of order, ability for each member to provide input and more.
Bylaws are the rules the local PTA must follow. They provide structure of the local PTA board, information on required meeting dates and other information necessary for the PTA to function. Bylaws are adopted and amended by a vote of your PTA’s members at a general meeting. PTA bylaws may not conflict with the National PTA bylaws or the New Mexico PTA bylaws.
