Vacant P&C positions
The most frequently asked question at Council office at this time of year is 'What if all our P&C executive positions cannot be filled?'
If some positions cannot be filled, they can be left temporarily vacant and filled at a later meeting. If essential positions are not filled, a new meeting (Special General Meeting)
should be well advertised. A letter home to parents pointing out the volunteers needed and the school services (eg canteen) put in jeopardy if they are not found will usually be enough to finalise the committee.
The P&C can operate with very minimal volunteers if needed. For example, as long as a volunteer is willing to look after basic bills and pay the insurance, services may be able to remain open. The hope is that in the following year, more volunteers will be forthcoming. Contact
our office if the problem persists!
