This message is on behalf of Georgia PTA President, Rita Erves, and the Georgia PTA Male Involvement Committee (Reginald Forrest/Chair and Keith Lamar/Vice Chair):
We are sure that all of you as excited as we are about the upcoming National PTA Male Engagement Conference that is just around the corner from October 24-26 in Atlanta. The increasing amount of male involvement that we have seen over the past years in this state tells us that Georgia will be well represented at this Conference. We have a few reminders to share with you.
