During the 2011 Washington State PTA Convention, a new bylaw was approved by delegates requiring that all executive committee members of a local unit or council receive yearly state-PTA-approved training in order to remain in good standing.* The amendment also required at least one member of the local unit’s executive committee to attend a PTA & the Law class.
Classes (including the PTA and the Law class) offered at this year’s WSPTA Convention provide an opportunity to fulfill your PTA’s bylaw requirement of obtaining PTA leadership training for the 2013-14 year. Registration information for the Convention will be available on the WSPTA website soon.
*A unit in “good standing” is defined in the WSPTA Uniform Bylaws Article 5 Section 2(a) for local units and Article 6 Section 2(a) for councils.
