Committees

The PASA Bylaws provide for three different types of committees.  PASA committees work under the direction of the Board of Governors and the Executive Committee.
 
Standing Statewide Committees
Three committees include a representative from each intermediate unit.  Members are elected from within their respective regions. Members of the Board of Governors are responsible for conducting these elections as needed.

Legislative: studies and directs PASA positions on specific legislation consistent with the Association's Resolutions and any direction from the Board of Governors

Membership: establishes and reviews membership policies, reviews the program of PASA membership services, and suggests to the Board of Governors policies that will improve association membership

Resolutions: annually drafts a Resolutions document that outlines general PASA positions on education issues, based on direction from the Board of Governors and from the general membership through regional meetings and discussions
 
Standing Operating Committees
Currently, PASA has four of these committees.  Each committee consists of nine members, appointed by the President to staggered three-year terms from among those submitting a written statement of interest in serving.
 
Elections: provides oversight of the election of PASA officers and Pennsylvania delegates to the AASA Governing Board, and is responsible for hearing and resolving any complaints or appeals regarding results of any PASA election
 
Professional Development: develops and evaluates an annual series of workshops covering important issues challenging public school administrators

Research & Development: supports and promotes research on emerging issues which have the potential to improve education
 
Technology: develops information and provides training that is designed to improve members’ efficiency and effectiveness through the use of technology
 
Ad Hoc Committees
Ad Hoc committees are appointed by the President as the need arises.  In making the appointments, the President gives due consideration to representation from geographical regions of the Association.  Ad Hoc committees may not usurp the functions of any standing committee named in the Bylaws.
