The purpose of this Call for Presenters is to solicit proposals for workshops for the Georgia Parent Teacher Association (PTA) 2018 State Convention Leadership Training June 15-16, 2018 taking place at The Augusta Convention Center in Augusta, Georgia. This “call” requires: workshop course title, description, learning objectives for 55-minute workshops and a speaker biography.
This event is the largest training forum for our membership focusing on core educational and leadership opportunities for both the new and experienced PTA leader. Georgia PTA Convention Leadership Training is attended by over 1,200 PTA leaders from across the state—leaders, who engage their communities, connect with their school boards and elected officials, and motivate members to work on behalf of all children. Georgia PTA is looking to build a program of workshops that feature training for officer positions, leadership skills, as well as priority programming areas such as family engagement, health & wellness, advocacy, diversity & inclusion, membership, and Reflections.
Track to Leadership
We encourage all presenters to develop and submit original, creative, thought-provoking workshop topics that will be of value to PTA leaders of all levels. Each workshop application submitted will be considered but is not guaranteed. Georgia PTA will allow attendees to choose their workshop selections. Presenters contribute their services in a volunteer capacity. Georgia PTA will not pay outside presenters or reimburse travel expenses.
Each 75 minute workshop should include core content that is highly interactive and engaging. Each workshop submission must include the following:
Once presenters are selected and notified, they will receive detailed information from Georgia PTA about technical requirements (for example, presenters must provide their own laptop) for the presentation and convention logistics.
All Power Point presentations and handouts will be provided to attendees on thumb drives and on the Georgia PTA website. Handouts will be copied for each presenter by the Georgia PTA staff and volunteers at the state office and provided to presenters by their facilitator prior to their workshop. Both of these tasks will be done weeks in advance of Convention Leadership Training, therefore they MUST be submitted to Georgia PTA by May 4, 2018.
