Bylaws govern an organization’s operations and contain the basic rules relating principally to itself as an association. The Oregon PTA bylaws direct the work of the Board of Directors, Coucils and Local Unit PTAs. The Bylaws are reviewed and amended annually at the Oregon PTA Conference and Convention. These bylaws conform to the National PTA Bylaws and create a foundation for all PTAs and leaders in the state to follow. Standing Rules are adopted by each Local PTA and Council and these rules cover the day to day operations of their units.
