Washington State PTA Learning Opportunities

Annual Legislative Assembly

  • During the WSPTA Legislative Assembly, delegates have the opportunity to debate, amend, and vote on short-term platform issues, long-term resolutions, and principles that were brought forth by the members through the grassroots submission process late last spring.

Focus Day

  • Each year in January or February, Washington State PTA (WSPTA) members travel to Olympia for a day full of engagement around our mission. Members meet with legislators, tour the capitol, and demonstrate advocacy in action. Details of the 2020 event will be available soon.

Advocacy Week

  • In addition to Focus Day in Olympia, WSPTA will be asking members to take action from home or your phone throughout an entire week. Each day will have a new prewritten message for members to send to their legislators regarding WSPTA legislative priorities. To participate, subscribe to the WSPTA Action Network to stay informed.

Leader Resources

  • As a benefit of affiliation with WSPTA, local PTA and council leaders have access to numerous resources. PTA leaders should prepare their board and committee members for success by making them aware of the variety of resources available on the WSPTA website.

WSPTA Convention

  • Each year, the Washington State PTA holds a convention for member PTAs and PTSAs for training opportunities, networking and to present new WSPTA business. The next convention will be held May 15-17 at the Lynnwood Convention Center.
