As first vice president you will:
- Assume the duties of the president in case of absence and perform other duties as assigned and as prescribed in the bylaws of your local unit.
- Study the bylaws, the National PTA President’s Quick Reference Guide, and Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised, in order to be familiar with parliamentary procedure and to be an able successor to the president should the need arise.
- Be sure your PTA is represented in all meetings, conferences, discussion groups and related activi-ties. If the president is not able to attend, then the vice president should.
- Refer to yourself as “the chair” when presiding at meetings.
