The annual Minnesota PTA Convention is an essential gathering for our local PTA units, leaders in education, and a growing support network, all which have the health, education and very best welfare of our many Minnesota children in mind.
During our convention time you will be able to:
- Network with other local PTA members to share ideas.
- Learn about National PTA programs.
- Get questions about advocacy answered.
- Take workshops to excel your abilities and knowledge.
- Listen to amazing guest speakers that will ignite your passion for supporting education.
- Get some great tips on communicating more effectively with parents and school staff.
- Take with you an abundance of tips & tricks you’ve learned that can be applied as soon as you head home.
We touch on the topics that are important to you and provide you with the resources you need to tackle every issue. (Have a topic of interest for our upcoming convention? Send your ideas, questions, or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org)
“What do I need to know? I’ve never attended a state PTA convention.”
“What does the registration fee cover?” – Your registration fee goes to cover the many services and support that Minnesota PTA provides during convention and the rest of the year. Registration cost can be covered by allocating PTA funds in your group for board members and is considered “appropriate use of funds” for the training, networking, and resources you gain by attending the annual convention. Parent Teacher Organization’s are not considered PTA members and must pay the non-member price but are welcome to attend. The fee includes technology, swag bags mailed to your home, and support for volunteer work. The experience gained far exceeds the investment.
Limited scholarships are available for certain members. Application opening will be announced soon.
“Should I bring anything?” – Bring a pen and paper if you want to write down some of the great ideas you’ll hear about. Bring an open mind and absorb some new ideas. Bring your ideas and questions to share. Don’t forget to invite a friend!
