Florida PTA Convention Scholarship

DCCPTA is offering a need-based scholarship for one local unit to send 2 Board members to Florida PTA Leadership/Convention at Innisbrook in July. 

Here is the Link Florida PTA Convention Scholarship App 2016

Florida PTA provides excellent training on how to run productive, dynamic and efficient PTAs that serve students, parents and teachers.
Training classes include:
Presidents and Treasurers (does NOT fulfill DCCPTA’s own REQUIRED P & T training)
other Exec Board Positions training
Advocacy and Legislation
How to get (more) Men Involved in PTA
Effective Communications: Newsletters, Websites & Social Media

Health & Wellness
…and more!
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.”

Remember, training is an INVESTMENT in the future leadership of your PTA and is a legitimate PTA Expense.
The application must be received by June 10, 2016.

2015 ONE by ONE Delegates told us they wanted more time to discuss education issues. They also told us how much they loved the inclusion of local students and how their voices are important to the conversation about public education. That’s why the Fourth Annual ONE by ONE Convention will feature two opportunities for you to participate in breakout session and witness spectacular student performances too!

As you can expect from our signature community conversations, there will be rich discussion about the state of our public schools with students, teachers, parents, faith leaders and grassroots leaders at the table. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from the district, local and national experts and be equipped to lead community conversations about public education.
