PTA Training Conference

I attended the Peralta District PTA Training/Conference today.  There was an overall sense of belonging in the room and the event was very well organized.  I’m not sure if you’ve ever been in a position where you feel like there’s a constant battle against the norm or your group is going against the grain.   Everyone in the room was a volunteer from the other schools.  Being around the other school PTAs was amazing.  This community of volunteers uplifted me and energized me for this upcoming year.

The camaraderie was great but seeing more than 100 volunteers in a room was more thrilling.  I could only imagine what could be accomplished at Ocean View if we had 100 volunteers.

Here’s the cool part about this—8 of the 9 board members of the Ocean View PTA attended the conference.  I’ve been at Ocean View for 5 years and I’ve never heard of a board with that attendance at the training.  It’s a dream come true for any board.  These conferences are important for each board member because they learn about their specific job titles, duties, and the common problems that happen.

Most people would fear joining the PTA after hearing more about the California State Budget cuts on education but our PTA is more excited to raise funds for the students this year.  I can’t wait to see what happens.

Stay tuned.
