PCO Volunteers 2019-2020

PCO Committee Sign Ups

There are a few committees that run year round but others are very limited in time commitment. We have tried to specify the expected time frame for each and give you a sense of what the time and task expectations are. Committee chairs are the point people for the PCO. The PCO will work with chairs to work on things like budget, communications, expectations and then the chairs will be responsible for the successful running of their committee.

We will be recruiting as needed for these needs throughout the year using channels such as the Monday Blast, ECS PCO website, and the ECS PCO Facebook page. Keep an eye out in those communication streams as something new may catch your eye!

Please review the information on volunteer clearances http://ecspco.org/volunteer/clearances/

Please check off committee interests you have for the upcoming school year. You will be contacted by the committee chairs (however, please follow up with [email protected] if you don't hear from someone- mistakes happen!).
