Candidate or Issue Forum

Candidate or issues forums are a great way to engage your communities in advocacy and to provide information needed to make informed and responsible choices when voting. The following documents are designed to assist your PTA in planning and conducting both types of forums. All sample documents should be edited to fit the needs of your school or district.



Bond Resolution and Motion Templates

PTAs may choose to conduct a formal vote to officially support a district bond. When considering such an action, the following templates can be used within the formal process.

Mentor a Decision Maker

Building a relationship with your city, school district, or state representative is essential to effective advocacy. The Mentor A Decision Maker program will guide you in building these relationships with your decision makers. This is an especially great program to implement between legislative sessions.
