 Legislative Assembly – October 20 & 21, 2017 – TACOMA, WA | HOTEL MURANO

Legislative Assembly is the official membership meeting where WSPTA’s members determine the endorsed platform for the association. It’s an event that provides members with the opportunity to learn, discuss, debate, and vote upon the issues submitted through a grassroots member process that align with the mission and vision of WSPTA. It’s a chance for members to participate in one of the best examples of the democratic process that exists in the PTA environment.

    “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
