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 during the 2019-2020 school 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.

Membership is the lifeblood of any local unit. The primary reason for developing membership is to build an informed team of individuals to work on behalf of all children and youth. We will show you various strategies and resources designed to help you increase and maintain the membership in your local unit.
