We provide advice and counsel to individual units so that they may better serve their members. We also serve as a clearing house for important paperwork and payments that must make their way to district, state and federal locations. We facilitate attendance at regional trainings.
GROUPS AND TASK FORCES, CONVENTIONS AND CONFERENCES
We nominate Association members to serve on District boards, groups and task forces. We send Association members to annual PTA Legislative, State and National conventions and conferences.
We administer the yearly "Reflections" Art campaign.
