About PTA


Regions of NYS PTA

PTA regions are geographical divisions of the New York State PTA organized to provide service to the units and councils within their territory. A region's board is its administrator. Region Directors are appointed by the executive committee of the New York State PTA (based upon recommendations from the region board), and officers are elected by delegates at spring conference (annual meetings). As a member of the New York State PTA Governance Team, the director voices the interests of units and councils within the region, and brings information from State PTA.  

Regions send informational mailings and newsletters. Spring conferences, presidents’ roundtables, "presidents and principals" luncheons or dinners, and other workshops provide leadership development for unit and council officers and chairmen.  

Region PTA boards are composed of experienced volunteers who were once unit and council leaders. They understand PTA and the needs of today's volunteers.
