As PTA members, we know how powerful mothers, fathers, grandparents and all caring adults can be when they join together to improve our schools. Convention is the time for us to join together to learn from each other, celebrate our successes and build for the future. We encourage you to attend and to take advantage of all the opportunities available at Convention.
Thank you to all attendees and vendors of the 119th Annual Convention, held in Niagara Falls.
For the first time, in 2015, we offered live video streaming of all our General Sessions. If you didn't have the opportunity to watch the sessions live, the General Session videos can be found here or below.
