Updating Your Unit Bylaws

When your PTA/PTSA begins updating the association bylaws use these documents.

The 2018 version of bylaws are very different than bylaws used in the past. Pay close attention to all of the procedures and instructions for an easy update.

These documents will also be posted on the CAPTA website for local leaders to download.

Contact the Ninth District PTA office at or the Ninth District PTA Parliamentarian at or if you require assistance.

Parliamentary Authority

Roberts RulesIn addition to the association bylaws, Robert’s Rules also provide authority for our PTA work. Every PTA should have a copy of one or both versions of these books. The expense is a legitimate PTA expenditure.


 “The rules contained in the current edition of ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER NEWLY REVISED shall govern the National PTA and this association in all cases in which they are applicable and in which they are not in conflict with these bylaws, those of the California State PTA, the National PTA, the articles of incorporation and the California Nonprofit Corporation Law.”
