Executive Board & Committee Chairs
The governance of DMA's PTA is a cooperative venture between the Executive Board and the Executive Committee. The Executive Board consists the elected positions of President, Vice Presidents, Treasurer and Secretary. The Executive Committee is made up volunteer PTA members that have taken on a leadership role as a Committee Chair or Co-Chair.
