Each summer, information for Presidents, Vice Presidents, Treasurers, Secretaries, along with information for Membership, Advocacy, Fundraising, Health, and Reflections Chairs, makes this event a unique energizing start to everyone’s PTA year. Get up to date on the latest rules and regulations from the IRS and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, sharpen your leadership and advocacy skills, learn about programs and grants, and take advantage of the networking opportunities.
We understand how difficult it can be to find childcare, so we are encouraging you to bring your children with you. Our Youth Committee members will be occupying the children with their own activities and crafts so the adults can participate in the meeting.
We are requesting that each PTA send a representative to summer leadership as the Massachusetts PTA standards of affiliation require that someone from each PTA attend at least one training each year. The person attending does not have to be an officer of the PTA, it can be a member who is interested in moving up or if there is someone that you think would be good to move up, or just a representative from the school. This is an excellent opportunity for any member who wants to know more about what PTA has to offer. Everyone is welcome; we hope that you and your other members will join us.
