Outside Conferences

The PTA cooperates with other organizations and agencies concerned with child welfare. PTA’s often receive invitations to attend conferences sponsored by allied organization(s) and governmental agencies.

Officers and chairmen attending the various events help build and strengthen association leadership.

In determining conference attendance, consider:

  • How it will benefit the association
  • Budget and fundraising activities necessary to cover expenses
  • Who best to represent the association
  • If it meets the Purposes of the PTA

Special consideration should also be given to the following:

  • A special fundraising event may provide part or all of the necessary funds, so already budgeted funds are not jeopardized.
  • Ensure the time and energy expended in raising funds is limited, so these activities do not impact other PTA purposes and projects
