Unit Bylaws

Each unit should have a bylaws committee as a standing committee.  The bylaws committee should review Bylaws and Standing Rules each year and make recommendations for changes if applicable.  Every PTA is required to update bylaws at least every three years.  Please check for the Missouri PTA approval date on the last page of your unit’s bylaws to determine if your bylaws are due for review.

Suggested Bylaws may be ordered for free by emailing the state office at office@mopta.org.  A copy of your unit’s current bylaws may also be emailed if requested.


Please follow these guidelines when submitting your bylaws or amendments:


Bylaws and amendments must be submitted in Microsoft Word as an email attachment.


The last page of the bylaws must contain the names of the bylaws committee.


Once approved, an electronic copy will be returned to your unit.


Any email submission that is not readable is the responsibility of the submitting PTA.  The PTA will be informed of the problem and allowed to resubmit by other means or by hard copy.                                                                                                                                                                                 

PRO TIP:  Request Suggested Unit Bylaws from Missouri PTA.  Also ask Missouri PTA for a copy of your bylaws (make sure you are starting in the right place!).  Copy and paste all articles with a # (as # indicates required wording by Missouri PTA).  Once you have your unit bylaws updated with the current # articles and sections, you can resubmit to Missouri PTA.  If you are not making any amendments, you do not need your PTA membership’s approval.  Any amendments require notice to your membership and approval of your membership (see your bylaws for specific directions on bylaws amendments).

Please reach out if you have any questions!
