With the changes made for National PTA Convention and Arkansas PTA Convention due to the pandemic, Arkansas PTA will not be hosting an inperson Summer Leadership Conference this July.
National PTA will be offering their virtual convention over a three week period from July 20 - August 7. Virtual workshops will be given during the week of July 27, with the sessions occuring between 1:00 and 4:00p.m. Unit leaders are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities for leadership and positional training. The Arkansas PTA convention will be held on August 8 virtually. We have also been advised that National PTA will be providing more training opportunities during the month of August.
Without knowing exactly what back-to-school is going to be like for our members, and the opportunities for exceptional workshops and trainings by National PTA, Arkansas PTA has decided not to schedule a training event at this time. However, ALL units still have the ability to request an individualized training session from Arkansas PTA, and we will schedule those at your unit's request.
