All PTA Executive Board Members are required to receive Leadership Training as a part of their unit's Active Affiliation with LAPTA. Each Executive Member needs 4 hours of training. LAPTA hosted in-person training in August and Zoom Training in September. We know not everyone could attend in person. No problem! The courses were recorded and are available to view at any time. Those who attended in person training satisfied the 4-hour requirement.
Planning for Next Year's Success Training
LAPTA provides training for a smooth transition at the end of the year from one Board to the next. Each course will be added as they are held. See Planning for Next Year's Success Zoom Links to participate in the live sessions.
Fall In-Person Training
LAPTA kicked off our Centennial Year with in person PTA Leadership Training at Mandeville and Shreveport August 20th and 27th. Thank you to everyone who attended! A big thank you to Pontchartrain Elementary PTA, Tchefuncte Middle PTA, and Caddo Magnet High PTSA for all the support and volunteers they provided. We could not have done it without them! Another big thank you goes out to the principals who graciously provided our training sites, Mr. Heier, Pontchartrain Elementary and Mr. Middleton, Caddo Magnet High. We appreciated your wonderful hospitality.
Active Affiliation Training Requirement
All elected officer positions (President, VPs, Treasurer, and Secretary) are required to receive 4 credits of Leadership Training Courses from LAPTA. This is done in-person in August, over Zoom trainings in September, one-on-one between LAPTA and the Local PTA Unit, or by watching recorded Zoom classes on your own time. We encourage all Board members to receive training as they are the future leaders of your PTA. Officers need 4 credits with each course counting as one unless otherwise noted. In-person training satisfied all 4 credits. If you have not received your certificate, download and complete the certificate below.
If you watch the recorded Zoom classes, download your own certificate below and fill it out fully with 2 signatures from the President and yourself, or President and another Executive Board member. Training Certificates are uploaded for the Active Affiliation Report. See all courses below.
