The 40th annual WSPTA Legislative Assembly will take place October 20-21, 2018 at Green River College, Auburn, WA. PTA delegates from across the state will come together to set a new platform of legislative priorities for the 2018-2020 legislative session in support of our vision of "Making every child's potential a reality." Delegates will have the opportunity to debate, amend, and vote on long-term resolutions and principles that were brought forth by the members through the grassroots submission process late last spring. In addition, the assembly will vote on new short-term platform issues that WSPTA will focus on in the upcoming legislative session.
The Guide to Proposed Legislative Principles, Legislative Issues and Resolutions, also known as the WSPTA Legislative Assembly Voter Guide, contains information needed to familiarize yourself with these proposals.
If you are interested in attending Legislative Assembly as a delegate for your local PTA, contact your local PTA president.
Registration for Legislative Assembly is now open! Get all the details: https://www.wastatepta.org/events-programs/legislative-assembly/.
