The purpose of this Call for Presenters is to solicit proposals for workshops for the Georgia Parent Teacher Association (PTA) 2021 State Convention Leadership Training June 10-12, 2021 taking place both Virtually and In-Person at The Iron Works Convention and Trade Center in Columbus, Georgia. This "call" requires workshop course title, description, learning objectives for 55-minute workshops and a speaker biography.
This event is the largest training forum for our membership focusing on core educational and leadership opportunities for both the new and experienced PTA leader. Georgia PTA Convention Leadership Training is attended by PTA leaders from across the state—leaders, who engage their communities, connect with their school boards and elected officials, and motivate members to work on behalf of all children. Georgia PTA is looking to build a program of workshops that feature training for officer positions, leadership skills, as well as priority programming areas such as family engagement, health & wellness, advocacy diversity & inclusion, membership, and Reflections.
BUILDING TOMORROW'S PTA TODAY
We encourage all presenters to develop and submit original, creative, thought-provoking workshop topics that will be of value to PTA leaders of all levels. Each workshop application submitted will be considered but is not guaranteed. Georgia PTA will allow attendees to choose their workshop selections at the time of registration. Presenters contribute their services in a volunteer capacity. Georgia PTA will not pay outside presenters or reimburse travel expenses.

Power Point presentations and PDFs of handouts due for approval by the Georgia PTA President.
All Power Point presentations and handouts will be provided to attendees on the Georgia PTA website. Handouts will be copied and/or posted for each presenter by the Georgia PTA staff and volunteers at the state office and provided to presenters by their facilitator prior to their workshop or if virtual presenter must submit and retain a copy of the workshop materials for virtual presentation. Both of these tasks will be done weeks in advance of Convention Leadership Training; therefore, they MUST be submitted to Georgia PTA by April 9th, 2021.
