Georgia PTA is extremely excited about next week’s Convention Leadership Training. As you all know, our Awards Banquet will take place on Saturday evening, July 12. This year’s theme for the banquet is “A Red Carpet Affair.” We will celebrate 100 years of hosting the Convention Leadership Training (a/k/a “CLT”). This Awards Banquet promises to be like no other. We truly appreciate every minute that you have spent advocating on behalf of every child for a period of many years, and we will celebrate in style.
We will pay homage to our 100th year of leadership trainings in “Grammy” style. The music played during the banquet will be that of Grammy winners throughout the decades. This will be a formal affair, so if you wish, we would like for you to come dressed in after five attire, including, but certainly not limited to, gowns, cocktail dresses, suits or tuxedos. There will be a “Red Carpet” entry along with paparazzi who will take your picture while on the Red Carpet. This “Red Carpet Affair” will be one for the ages! If you have not already purchased your banquet tickets, please do so as soon as possible. Onsite registration is now open! We are hoping to see you all next week at our 100th CLT!

The Georgia PTA Legislative Committee is pleased to announce that we are hosting a State Superintendent Candidates’ Forum at the 100th Year Convention Leadership Training on Friday, July 11, 2014! It is critical that all PTA members become more informed child advocates by learning about candidate positions and legislative issues affecting children and public schools.
Sit back and put your seat belt on. You will be motivated and captivated by this dynamic speaker. Dr. Constantino is a Family Engagement guru and will deliver a “one of a kind” address during General Session I on Friday that you will never forget!

He received an extended standing ovation at last week’s National PTA Convention in Austin after an incredibly engaging presentation. We are so excited about his appearance at the 2014 CLT!
The purpose of the Youth Summit is to prepare our young leaders for tomorrow. We will offer workshop activities, discussion panel, and keynote speakers, just to name a few.
The focus topics will be centered around:
We are confident that every student in attendance at this Summit will leave inspired, motivated and ready to advocate.
This year, we will host our first ever Male Summit in conjunction with Convention Leadership Training. When you register for convention, you may select to attend the Male Summit.
PTA wants to build male leaders! With continued high school graduation rates on the decline, bullying on the rise, absenteeism rampant, to name a few, we need more male involvement. PTA has put together an effective plan, one of which is hosting a male summit. The summit is designed to serve as a platform to encourage males to become intimately involved with the education and welfare of children at school and in the community. This event will provide an opportunity to discuss matters pertinent to males and will also identify programs that can assist with eradicating issues in our schools and communities.
When you register for convention leadership training, you may select to attend the Emerging Minority Leadership Conference (EMLC) by the appropriate box on the registration form.
About EMLC: The Diversity Committee for Georgia PTA is following National PTA’s lead to train emerging minority leaders for PTA. The workshops will take place July 11-12, 2014.
We are asking the leadership in the field to identify potential leaders that fit the description outlined in Georgia PTA’s Position Statement on Diversity: “The recognition of diversity within organizations is valuing differences and similarities in people through actions and accountability. These differences and similarities include age, ethnicity, language and culture, economic status, educational background, gender, geographic location, marital status, mental ability, national origin, organizational position and tenure, parental status, physical ability, political philosophy, race, religion, sexual orientation and work experience.”
Please consider the new faces in your area that have potential to become leaders for their local units, councils, districts and State PTA. With the training and mentorship available at this CLT, we hope to grow our committed volunteer base.
