Monthly Leadership Training

As a PTA/PTSA leader, you have to be "PTA flexible".  You also have to know what you can and can't do as a non-profit, how to run membership and fundraising campaigns, how to advocate within your school for all children, how to best spend your limited time on PTA activities, and how to grow your unit into an organization that will outlast your tenure.  We are here to support you in running your PTA, and reduce the headaches and liabilities non-profits can run into.  We offer Leadership training on a monthly basis to address current issues, new and existing programs, and the ins-and-outs of running a PTA.
