Board/Chair Positions ~This is the heart of our organization—recruiting, funneling, directing volunteers to events & programs, matching wants and needs with resources, always on the look-out for someone who might want to get involved but who doesn't know how. You are a very public face to our PTCO!  

PTCO Audit ~Review the PTCO financial and legal documents against a prepared checklist (provided by the State PTCO office) for compliance with regulations, policies and best practices.  Identify any required amendments and recommend improvements. A working knowledge of finances and PTCO practices is useful, but not required.
