California State PTA Convention is a great way to connect with PTA leaders from around the state to receive training, share ideas, and energize your PTA. At convention, you will attend workshops and trainings, attend special events – Steam Extreme (Friday 10-3), experience the business of the association during the general meetings, and visit the exhibitor and sponsor hall to obtain ideas about fundraising and program ideas for your PTA.

PTA Convention is being held a short car ride away in Monterey this year from May 16-18. Early registration is the least expensive way ($239) to attend, but you must register between March 1-31. Registration from April 1 – May 10 $289, and Registration at the door will be $349. Single day registration is available. More detailed information about registration, hotels, and convention events will sent to you from California State PTA soon.  

This year, Sixteenth District will be in the stoplight on Friday morning, as our Legislative Chair, Heather Smith will be presenting her resolution entitled, Temperature Control Standards in the Classroom Setting at the general meeting. If you are considering one day attendance, please keep this in mind. We’d love to have a large contingent in attendance from our District PTA, so please join us!
