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.


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.
