Hospitality

The hospitality Chairperson is the official host of the PTO unit and, with a Committee, has the responsibility of establishing a friendly, comfortable atmosphere between the PTO and the school. The hospitality Committee helps to create a sense of belonging that invites members to become involved in PTO activities. The hospitality Chairperson should work with the Committees who plan programs or events, and vice versa.

Duties:

The only specific duties that this committee holds is scheduling and hosting our three PTO-sponsored teacher luncheons. Coordinate and purchase the food/drinks once the total number of staff is determined. Volunteer staff may be needed to help run the event as well as man the food tables.

Time needed:

A couple of weeks (days here and there and the actual day of the events) preparation ahead of the event (Typically held on Staff working/student holidays: back to school, Parent conferences, and End of school year).

Characteristics/Skills Needed:

Organization: Need to secure a vendor or prepare a pot luck to feed the 100+ staff members at SBE.

Dependable: Must be present at the event and secure staffing as needed.

Lifespan of Committee:

August, October and May – generally

Personal benefits:

Get to know our SBE staff in a more personal way than just merely passing them in the hallways.
