National PTA Legislative Conference



 

This year's National PTA Legislative Conference is themed around the Olympics—because the best advocates are like athletes, always training and striving to be better.

 

Please join us in our nation's capitol March 13-15 for workshops, networking the chance to make your voice heard in the halls of Congress.

 

Don't miss the chance to take your skills to the next level and hit your advocacy goals out of the park!  Email president@westvirginiapta.org for more information.
