Statement on the Impact of Virtual Learning on PTA Members and Officer Eligibility
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many PTAs have had questions about the potential impact of distance and home learning on PTA membership and officer eligibility.  During the August 10 Meeting, Hamid Munir, Director of NOVA PTA provided some guidance on the potential impact of distance and home learning on PTA membership eligibility.  Those comments are reflected in the Minutes and are summarized in the following FAQ:

“Q: Can parents of students who are virtual, temporary, or home schooled, or in private-school become members of PTA? Can they be officers?

A: Yes. VAPTA Local Unit Bylaws Article 5: Membership and Dues. Section 2. Membership in this local PTA/PTSA shall be open, without discrimination, to anyone who believes in and supports the mission and purpose of National PTA. Section 6. Only members of this local PTA/PTSA shall be eligible to vote in the business of this local PTA/PTSA or to serve in any of its elected or appointed positions.”
