All PTA/PTSA local units and councils affiliated with the Washington State PTA are required, as a condition of their affiliation, to abide by and conform to the WSPTA Uniform Bylaws. Click here to access the bylaws on the WA State PTA website.
Standing rules are the rules an organization uses to administer its affairs under the provisions of its Bylaws. Standing rules are more flexible than Bylaws and may be changed at any executive board meeting by a majority vote if previous notice was given or 2/3 vote without previous notice. The standing rules serve as a guide and become the most valuable tool for the orientation of new board members. Well-written standing rules ensure the orderly transfer of duties from one administration to the next.
