Membership and Qualifications
Who are the voting members of CPAC?
The voting members of CPAC consist of the president or designee from each of the 32 district community Presidents’ Councils, the 5 borough high school Presidents’ Councils/Federation, and the District 75 Presidents’ Council.
Who is the CPAC voting member if the Presidents’ Council elects co-Presidents?
The co-presidents will decide who will serve as the CPAC voting member. Each Presidents’ Council has only one voting member and this position cannot rotate. Presidents’ Councils can change their voting member with 10-days notice to CPAC.
What if the Presidents’ Council president (or co-presidents) cannot serve as the CPAC representative?
Then the Council or Federation must select a designee, who must be approved by the general membership of the Presidents’ Council or Federation.
What happens if a CPAC voting member is unable to attend a CPAC meeting?
Then the Presidents’ Council president may select an alternate. Written notification must be provided to CPAC. If the alternate is the Presidents’ Council president, he/she may participate fully at the CPAC meeting. If the alternate is not the Presidents’ Council president, the alternate is eligible to speak as a voting member but may not vote as a CPAC member or act as a CPAC member at formal CPAC meetings or feedback sessions with the DOE.
Who votes if both the Presidents’ Council /Federation designee to CPAC and the Presidents’ Council President attend CPAC?
Only the designee votes, as he/she is the official representative from the Presidents’ Council/Federation to CPAC.
