Why Go to Convention?

Why should a local PTA set aside funds to send members to convention? The answer is quite simple. PTA is a continuous learning process. We only make progress if we are willing to accept the challenge of change, to learn and to grow in knowledge, skills and experience and participate in the business of the organization.
At each convention, attendees have the opportunity to:

  • Meet State and National PTA leaders;
    • Hear from experts in fields of PTA concern:
  • Learn about the inner workings of PTA as an organization:
    • Participate in a variety of workshops where ideas and skills can be learned
      and later share with your local PTA;
    • Exchange ideas and successes, network and learn from PTAs around the state;
  • Develop leadership skills;
    • Create helpful lists of contacts, and
    • Celebrate the outstanding work of local unit, council and district PTA’s.

Voting delegates also have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in the business of the organization;
  • Vote on the legislative platform that will direct the advocacy of our
  • Establish the priorities to be addressed; and
  • Participate in the election of future state leaders.

Sending delegates to convention are a legitimate PTA expense and will profit your organization in many ways! Training the new leaders of your PTA will make sure your PTA is on the right road to success.
