Michigan PTA Summer Leadership Academy

Are you a new or a returning PTA officer this year?  Have you been to training before?  Does running a meeting make you nervous?  Could you use a few tips on Parliamentary Procedure?  Do you know the basics about being the treasurer for your Unit?  Then the Summer Leadership Academy is for you!  Register now – either online or by mail.  It’s easy, and it’s affordable (especially if you are already a PTA member!)  Your Unit should have a line item for training to cover the cost (your Treasurer will know that the budget needs to be approved by the membership BEFORE reimbursing you though!)

We’re looking forward to seeing you there – it’s local!  This year’s Summer Leadership Academy is being hosted by:

Dearborn Edsel Ford High School
2061 Rotunda Drive
Dearborn, MI
