Leadership Webinar Series

Has this happened to you? You intended to go to the PTA training, but you a) got home late; b) couldn’t find a sitter; c) were too tired for a long drive at night. The Solution is here: NYS PTA Webinars!

NYS PTA is hosting a series of webinar trainings for local and region PTA leaders. You can train at home, with a friend, or at a PTA meeting; all you need is a computer with good internet connection or a phone to participate via conference call.

All leadership webinars are recorded so you can watch them anytime. You can also download all the presentation slides and follow along. Scroll down to view the previous webinars and download the slides.
