PTO Officers Job Descriptions
These guidelines were copied from PTO Today website as part of the sample Bylaws. It is a guideline for what the position will entail so if you volunteer you will have an idea of what is needed. When the Bylaws are written for our club they will be more specific but this will give a general idea of what is required for the position. We need to cover these positions tonight.
