• First and Last Name
• Unique Email Address
• School District and Local PTA Name (yes, even if a Council board member!)
• Birth Month and Birth Date
Register Others for LAUNCH
Register more than one Leader with the required information outlined above. You will need to begin a new registration for each attendee.

Apply for Financial Assistance
Texas PTA offers financial assistance for a limited number of PTAs to offset a portion of the costs incurred in attending LAUNCH. If applying for financial assistance, do not process a paid registration while awaiting a decision on your application. Texas PTA will not refund paid registrations if PTAs are awarded assistance.
