The business meeting of the 2nd Annual Free State PTA Convention (State Convention) is scheduled for July 28 – July 31, 2022.  The State Convention is the official meeting of the delegate body of Free State PTA, and this will be our second virtual convention.

 

Convention gives members the opportunity to:

  • Meet, network and develop relationships with others from all across Maryland who love children as much as you do.

  • Hear from National PTA representatives and other keynote speakers.

  • Participate in motivating and informative workshop sessions on current issues, advocacy and leadership training that will help you develop programs, projects and activities in your local PTA/PTSA.

 

As PTA members, we know how powerful mothers, fathers, grandparents and all caring adults can be when they join together to improve our schools. Convention is the time for us to join together to learn from each other, celebrate our successes and build for the future. We encourage you to attend and to take advantage of all the opportunities available at Convention.
