What’s Happening in PTA? November 2020 Edition

We never want you to miss a training opportunity, advocacy call or webinar hosted by California State PTA, so each month we are going to post information right here on our blog about dates, times and ways to join our PTA events.

November 4: Advocacy Call 

Join California State PTA Director of Legislation Shereen Walter and members of the Legislation Team during our monthly webinar, where we discuss all the latest information.

The webinars take place the first Wednesday of the month from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Webinar registration link for all dates: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/rt/31940121174953740

November 5: Social Media Kit Reveal

California State PTA knows that communication is one of the most important tools in a Unit’s, Council’s, or District’s toolbox, and when done well, improves every aspect of the PTA experience. To support our members, the California State PTA Communication Commission is hosting monthly calls with Q&A, mini-trainings, and a walk-through of that month’s Social Media Kit

For November 2020 our focus is Thankful for our Volunteers!  The November Social Media Kit celebrates how much you and other PTA volunteers do for children and families in your community. The kit includes PTA themed customizable images and blurbs for use on your unit/council/district social media accounts. Join us on November 5th as we show you the new kit and our mini-training on the new Facebook Business Suite.

Zoom Meeting information:  

POSTPONED UNTIL JANUARY — November 11: Virtually Connected to your Community Through PTA

Our Membership, Education and Family Engagement Commissions have come together for a night filled with great information for our PTA leaders. This was originally scheduled for Nov. 11, but has been postponed until January 2021. Stay tuned for more details.  

November 15: Tax deadline, if your fiscal year ended on June 30th

All nonprofits have to file state and federal taxes in order to stay in compliance with the law — PTA is no different. If your unit’s fiscal year ended on June 30th you must have your taxes filed or postmarked by November 15th. This year the 15th is on a Sunday, so your final deadline is actually November 16th.  For help filing your taxes, visit our Tax Filing Support Center
