Volunteer to be part of the Nominating Committee to nominate candidates for the PTA Board and Chair Positions!
Herbert Hoover Elementary

What is a Nominating Committee? 

The Nominating Committee (or NomCom for short) is a group of volunteer parents whose purpose is to seek out and recruit parents and teachers for PTA Board positions and Key Chair roles for the next school year.


Yikes! That’s way in the future… I am just trying to survive this school year! 

Yes, we know. : ) However, our PTA bylaws dictate that the Nominating Committee must be voted in by the General Association at our February meeting (Feb 13) and post/publish the Nomination List 28 days before the April General Association meeting (April 9). Hence, the invitation to join. NomCom is here!


We are looking for parents from every grade level, including our incoming grades. The committee will include both experienced PTA members, as well as brand new parents and will have a total of 3 members with 1 alternate. The deadline to volunteer is Jan 30th. 


Why would I be interested in adding this to my plate? 

There are at least 2 great reasons…


  1. You may be interested because you seek a deeper connection with our school and with our community. By joining NomCom, you learn more about how the PTA supports both. You’ll learn about our events, programs, and activities, and you will learn more about how PTA works to enrich your child’s school experience. 
  2. You will create new friendships! Not only does your child meet new friends, you do too! 


Interested? If you are – or if you are a firm maybe, please contact the PTA Parliamentarian Nupur Kothari (nupurk@gmail.com) or PTA President Lisa Ma Wu (lisama@gmail.com) by Jan 30th. They would love to chat with you about this opportunity and answer any questions you may have. 


It is essential we fill the following PTA Executive Board roles for 2024-2025:


Executive Vice President

VP of Events

VP of Fundraising


Recording Secretary 



We have more roles available such as Committee Chairs and Key Volunteers but it is essential to fill the Executive Roles first so we are able to have a smooth transition.
