Social Media Kits from Prior Months

January 2022 – California State PTA Celebrating 125 Years of Advocacy for Children

Didn’t make it this month? Here’s a quick overview of what was covered: 

  •  During our call, there was a demo of how to edit the California 125 Founders’ Day graphic to add your PTA/PTSA’s name. We discussed how to use the logos, social media images, and copy to supplement and complement your existing communication materials. We also shared a sneak peek at the new California Founders’ Day Proclamation Kit and talked about how to use the kit throughout 2022. Here are the links to Founders’ Day resources discussed during the call:
  • Mini-Training from Third District PTA VP Communications (and State Communications Commission Consultant Tom Nelson) on TechSoup. You can find his slide deck here.
  • As the state board heads into final convention planning, we had a discussion about workshop and field service training needs/wants.

Use the copy and images provided in this kit on your social media accounts, in your newsletters and announcements, and even in your zoom calls. Thank you to all our fellow PTA communicators as you connect, include, inspire your community, and grow PTA.
