What Are Bylaws?
Bylaws are a document containing the basic rules of the organization, defining its primary characteristics and how the organization functions. Bylaws include rules the organization considers so important that they cannot be changed without previous notice to the members and a vote — in a manner specified in the bylaws themselves. Bylaws cannot be suspended.
All local PTAs/PTSAs, all PTA/PTSA councils, and the Washington State PTA (WSPTA) are governed by the same set of bylaws. Amendments to the WSPTA Uniform Bylaws can be made only at the WSPTA convention.
