Training

One of the compliance requirements for local units is to have each Officer attend local leader
training each year.  Therefore, all PTA officers that are serving each year must attend Leadership
Training even if they have attended this training in the past.  While the topics may be the same,
new information and new IRS/PTA guidelines and processes are covered each year. In addition,
important information about national programs and grant opportunities are discussed. We also give
an overview of Memberhub and walk through important Leader Knowledge areas of the National
PTA website.
