What are Standing rules?

Standing rules are the specific conditions or rules a local PTA/PTSA or council chooses to impose upon itself within the scope of the Texas State PTA (TSPTA) Uniform Bylaws.

Standing rules are adopted by the membership to govern the PTA’s operation. The standing rules must be reviewed, updated (if necessary), and approved annually by the general membership of each local PTA or council. Standing rules can be amended at any time by a vote of the general membership. If the membership has been given proper notice prior to the date of the meeting of the intended change, then the change can be approved by a majority vote of the members present; if no notice was given prior to the meeting, a 2/3 vote of the members present is required (if quorum has been established).
