Nevada PTA

Standards For Continued Affiliation

The Nevada State PTA Standards of Affiliation is a policy that defines the relationship between the constituent units and Nevada PTA, including what Nevada PTA will provide to those associations. The policy sets the standards for a successful constituent unit association; protects the Nevada PTA and National PTA name, identity, and brand; and ensures that all will be treated fairly and equally.

The SOA is in place to ensure units align all communications and actions with Nevada PTA’s vision, mission, values, and policies and to comply with applicable federal laws. In addition, units shall support the current Nevada PTA legislative and advocacy priorities and only take public positions which are consistent with adopted Nevada PTA positions and resolutions.

Nevada PTA recognizes its responsibility to preserve the reputation and trust of the PTA brand through support of its units in the state.

Background: Local PTAs fall under the corporation of Nevada PTA and, as such, must abide by the outlined standards to maintain their affiliation with Nevada PTA and National PTA. As a 501(c)(3), there are many requirements placed on the association by the IRS; therefore, Nevada PTA has a duty of care and responsibility to ensure local PTAs adhere to those requirements.

Nevada PTA’s staff and the Leadership Vice President shall be responsible for monitoring compliance of all PTAs. The Region Director or councils shall do a monthly review of the unit status and make monthly contact with local PTAs that are not in good standing and offer assistance for bringing them into good standing.

In the event that a local PTA fails to meet the minimum standards for units in good standing, that PTA will be notified in writing of the intent to revoke the PTA’s charter with Nevada PTA. If the local PTA is affiliated with a school, that school’s administration will be copied on the written notice of revocation.
