Do You Want to Help Shape the Future of
Florida's Youth? With RESOLUTIONS You Can!
Resolutions are an important way for local PTA units and councils to shape the work of the PTA. The passage of a resolution at the Florida PTA Leadership/Convention directs the state Board of Directors, Councils, and local units in areas of advocacy, legislative priority, and program development.
Do you have an issue that really concerns you and other members of your local unit/council?
Do you want to bring your concern to the attention of other PTA members in Florida?
Then get started NOW and have your resolution presented for consideration at Florida PTA Leadership/Convention in July.
