California State PTA Convention 2020 Canceled

Dear PTA Leaders and Members:

During this challenging time, the health and safety of our members, leaders, and families is of paramount importance. We understand from all official guidance that it is not prudent to hold large events. With this in mind, we unfortunately must cancel the 121st Annual Convention in Riverside that was scheduled to take place from May 15-17, 2020. This includes cancellation of all convention-related meetings, including the District Leadership Symposium, the in-person Board of Managers meeting and the proposed PTA Unity reception.

Thank you all for your patience as we work through next steps. The state office will reach out directly to those who already registered to offer full refunds.

We appreciate your participation in and support of California State PTA. During the coming weeks, we will provide resources and support to our members, leaders, and families through communication channels, as well as important updates concerning the business of the association.

Yours truly,

Celia Jaffe
California State PTA
