  • Who can/should attend? All PTA members and leaders are welcome and encouraged to attend. We know that sometimes there is not a dedicated Communications Officer and that the work is done by a volunteer leader(s) with other titles. We always include at least 15 minutes for general Q&A and can also set up 1:1 calls if needed.
  • Are the monthly calls recorded? We don’t record these calls because the technical updates on social media platforms and other communication technologies change so frequently that the recordings would be out of date within weeks.  If there are handouts, logos (as .png or .pdf files), or updated Social Media Kit materials provided, we do post them on the Communication section of the Leaders’ Website the week after the call. Links to editable Canva templates are only provided during the call.
  • Where else can I get help/training? The Communications Commission offers workshops at the California State PTA Convention and hosts a Communications Booth for 1:1 support at the convention.
