Here’s how one recent Duval County PTA president describes her first trip to Innisbrook: 
“I had the pleasure of attending the state conference with my vice-president and treasurer (in 2013), and found the experience to be invaluable. Not only did we as a board get to know each other better, we also had a better idea of how to do our jobs with excellence. We went home full of excitement and ideas for the new year. I would recommend every local unit set aside funds to enable at least a few people to go – the investment is well worth it.”
Maria Croft 
President
Fishweir Elementary PTA
  
Remember, training is an INVESTMENT in the future leadership of your PTA and is a legitimate PTA Expense.
