by California State PTA

Would you like to serve on the 2023-25 California State PTA Board of Managers? Be part of the nation’s largest volunteer child advocacy association working to improve the education, health, and welfare of all children and families!

Our Board of Managers (BOM) conducts the business of the California State PTA. We work together to further the mission of PTA by developing programs and policies that support local leaders and by promoting the welfare of children and families in schools and local communities.

PTA has been instrumental in establishing programs and services to improve children’s lives for more than 125 years. We are part of the foundation of our public education system and a trusted messenger to millions of members, parents, guardians, families, educators, and allied agencies throughout the state. 

Through commissions and committees, the BOM addresses internal PTA organizational priorities such as leadership, membership, programs and services, communications, and finance, as well as external focus areas such as family engagement, education, and health and community concerns.

Committee-only and consultant positions are also available and offer flexibility to help advance the work of the association in the areas of the Reflections Art Program, scholarships, grants, resource development, the School Smarts Program, and more.
