Membership provides voting privileges. During meetings, SPTG business is determined by a simple majority vote of members present. Proxy votes by members not attending a meeting can be submitted to Board members prior to the meeting though recognition of those votes is the decision of the Executive Board. SPTG membership also permits teachers to have their students participate in our Advancing Student Recitals and the Spring Festival recitals.
