PTA Board

The Beacon Hill International School (BHIS) PTA is comprised of a dedicated group of volunteers. Join the PTA Leadership team and lend your skills and enthusiasm to support and enhance our children’s education!

The board of directors is comprised of the executive committee and all committee chairs as designated by the board. Executive committee members are the president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer, and are elected by a simple majority at a general membership meeting in the spring- this year on May 29th, 2018 at 6PM in the school cafeteria. Committee chairs are appointed by the president and approved by the executive committee at a board meeting.

Any position may be co-chaired as provided in the PTA’s Standing Rules. Positions are filled for a term of one year and commence on July 1. Individuals may be reappointed to a maximum of one additional term.

Current PTA committee vacancies are highlighted as OPEN below and job descriptions are linked for each position. If you have questions about the roles and responsibilities of BHIS PTA Board positions, please contact any of the board members listed below.
