President-Elect added to Board position options
We have added President-Elect as a Board position choice, in the officer position selection dropdown in your PROFILE > BOARD area.
It's End of Year Process time!!!
It's June, and time to start thinking about the End of Year process in your PT Avenue account. The EOY process advances Board positions, resets members to Not Paid, and archives financials (if applicable) putting the account into the 2017-18 school year.
Note that the Head Admin is the ONLY one with access to this process, through the PROFILE >End of Year.
Regardless of the type of account you have (Basic, FInancial, or Full), someone with access should go to the PROFILE > BOARD area and edit each Board member (click on their name) to indicate NEXT year's positions (if continuing), or to add new next-year Board members through the "Add" button in the upper right, putting in just next year's position. These positions will be advanced during the EOY process.
You may also want to create Helper logins for other Board members, through the PROFILE > HELPERS screen.
Whenever you are ready after that, the Head Admin should watch the training videos in the EOY area, then do the End of Year process. Besides resetting member dues status and advancing student grade levels, specific parts of this EOY process 1) advances Board positions based upon what you put in the Board listings, and 2) includes a step where the current Head Admin can designate another existing Helper login as next year's Head Admin, if they are stepping down.
Please watch the EOY videos and check out the Help files, for more step-by-step information on the EOY process!

New Direct Link for volunteer hour entry
If you go to the Profile tab > Profile then scroll to the bottom of the page where you activate Member Volunteer Hour Entry, you will see a new direct link for the volunteer hour entry. You can place this on your schools website so the volunteers can log their own hours.
Move to 2016-17 with the EOY process
It's October -- have you done the End of Year process in your account yet? This process resets all Paid members to Unpaid, advances your Board positions, archives financials, and generally resets your account for a clean start to the new school year. If your account still shows "2015-2016," contact your Head Administrator on the account, and encourage them to do the EOY! There are complete videos and help files to explain the process.
