Autumn Leadership Launch

Calling all leaders! Join us on September 16-18, 2021, for WSPTA’s first annual virtual ALL (Autumn Leadership Launch) and be one of our inaugural attendees. Create a strong start to your year with updated training and networking for new and returning leaders.
WSPTA is excited to reimagine how we do back-to-school leader development. In the past, there would be separate region conferences offering many of the same training opportunities. To better utilize resources and provide a more comprehensive program, we’ve pulled together a great event that is relevant for all leaders across the state and provides many opportunities for learning and networking. Check out the agenda here.
Registration is $25 between August 14 and September 7. And, a late registration rate of $35 is available through September 14, when all registration closes. In addition, WSPTA is offering a subsidized rate of $5 for those in need of assistance.

These trainings are instrumental in keeping your PTA informed and ready!
  • PTA & the Law:  One officer must attend per year and is the most important classes you will take!  Recommended for President, Treasurer, and the Fundraising (or Carnival, Raffle, or Bingo chair). Covers State & Federal rules and regulations for running a non-profit corporation, Raffles, Gambling, Taxes, and deadlines for filing.
  • Managing your Non Profit PTA:  Covers all the in’s and out’s of what you need to ensure your Non-Profit business complies with state and federal regulations.
    “As board members, it is our fiduciary responsibility to manage the corporation in the best interest of its members as a whole. To run programs and handle budgets responsibly, knowledge of the applicable state and federal regulations is key to operate your non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable corporation.   Training is what helps to give our local PTAs credibility. A well-trained and informed board should be a great selling point to encourage the community to join a local PTA. Trained board members should be proud of stepping up to the responsibility in their local PTA.” ~ WSPTA Website
