More on starting up KCS PTSA as a Hawaii State PTSA local unit.

We are currently going down the path of becoming a local unit of the Hawaii State PTSA. General details about the benefit of this status and the application process can be found here:

A copy of the standard Hawaii PTSA bylaw template is available on the above page and can be downloaded directly as a Microsoft Word document here:

We will need to decide on any changes that our group would like to add to the bylaws and pass the final bylaws by a 2/3 vote.

We will need to sign up a minimum of 15 members and will need to elect a board as part of the application process.  The base cost for dues is $9.25 per person (not per family). Note that we also need to cover, at a minimum $100 for insurance and $30 for incorporation filing fees. We should discuss whether to incorporate this into our membership dues or cover this in another manner.

More details to come… and please join us at the meeting at Kalama Park this evening at 5 PM at the Pavillion by the playground.
