California State PTA (CAPTA) is holding its first-ever Virtual Summer Leadership Academy! Summer is the perfect time for you as a PTA leader to hone your leadership skills in preparation for the coming school year and get up to speed on what you need to know to more effectively run your PTA.

This training will be spread out over three sessions in July and August. In July, CAPTA will offer training for treasurers and presidents, plus classes in compliance, membership basics, and how to use the TOTEM electronic membership system. The August sessions will be issue-based and will cover subjects such as advocacy, family engagement, fundraising, and education. Learn more by browsing the schedule below.

The fee is $20 per PTA unit, and your board members can attend as many classes as they’d like.

PTA For Your Child with National PTA’s All-New Membership Campaign

Today, PTA’s role is more important than ever in connecting parents, teachers, and administrators, and supporting critical school needs. We want every family in our schools to join PTA because we can do more together than apart.

Our new membership campaign—PTA For Your Child—is designed to engage and excite new members and existing members by making the work of the PTA more visible and highlighting the value and impact of PTA.

To bolster your membership recruitment activities, we have developed a suite of materials, including a campaign toolkit that outlines how to effectively communicate the value of PTA membership, a suite of dynamic visuals and collateral materials, and a campaign rollout checklist.
