State Advocacy Conference
Annually at the State Capitol
It is important for PTA leaders and members to build a year-long working relationship with state and local legislators and to understand both the issues impacting children and how education is funded in Georgia. At the State Advocacy Conference, hosted annually by Georgia PTA, learn to be more effective advocates for children while participating in establishing the Georgia PTA legislative platform.
PTA Day at the Capitol
Annually in February at the State Capitol
This annual event is held in February when the state legislature is in session. PTA Day at the Capitol provides PTA leaders, members and supporters an opportunity to become more familiar with the legislative process and to actively speak with legislators about education and children’s issues. Develop and put your advocacy skills to work under the Gold Dome and over lunch with your state legislators. Bring a van full of PTA members – all wearing red – and let your voice for children be seen and heard.
Georgia PTA Convention Leadership Training (CLT)
Annually in June or July
Georgia PTA encourages members to attend the annual Convention Leadership Training. Delegates participate in workshops and general sessions, vote on officers for the state PTA (biannually), network, and celebrate the accomplishments of PTAs from around Georgia. We strongly encourage each unit and council to send delegates every year.
A wide variety of workshops are offered for both new and veteran PTA leaders. At CLT you will receive resource guides, membership cards and other valuable resources, plus have the opportunity to visit an extensive exhibit hall and network with PTA leaders from around the state.
