Newman Parent Association Information

Newman Families:

The Newman Parent Association (NPA) would like to invite you to consider filling out an application to become a board member.

The NPA's job is not simply to raise money. Instead, the NPA is responsible for overseeing the organization's overall fundraising and, in particular, the fundraising done by the board.

To accomplish this, its responsibilities are:

1. To work with Newman Administration and other NPA Board Members to establish a fundraising plan incorporating a series of appropriate vehicles, such as special events, direct mail, product sales, etc;


2. To take the lead in certain types of outreach efforts, such as chairing a dinner/dance committee or hosting fundraising parties, etc;

3. To be responsible for involvement of all board members in fundraising, such as having board members make telephone calls to ask for support; and

4. To monitor fundraising efforts to be sure ethical practices are in place, donors are acknowledged appropriately, and fundraising efforts are cost effective.

Monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Newman Conference Room. Additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.

Being a board member does relieve you from the twelve hour time commitment; however, you will most likely work harder and put in more time throughout the year by attending the monthly meetings and fundraising events.

Please open the attachment to print out the application. Applications are due by 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 15, 2015.

Thank you for your consideration,

Gary Velasquez
