Legislative Action

Dear Legislative Action Chair,

A reason PTA stands out above other associations is our efforts to advocate for children. Being elected the Legislative Action Chair is a great opportunity for you to get involved in legislation that affects our state’s schools. By keeping an eye on Texas PTA’s legislative positions, you have the responsibility of keeping your PTA informed of what laws are being set in place. The Legislative Action Chair also stays informed with occurrences in their CommYOUnity. If you have any questions throughout the year or have a success story to share, email me HERE.
