NCPTA Convention Postponed

Our North Carolina Parent Teacher Association (NCPTA) team understands that our focus now and in the coming weeks must be on our health and well-being.

With this in mind, NCPTA has decided to postpone the 2020 NCPTA Reflections Celebration (previously scheduled for April 25 in Durham) and 2020 NCPTA Annual Convention(previously scheduled for May 14-May 16 in Durham). While NCPTA is postponing these events to later dates, since the duration of the coronavirus crisis is unknown, we will have to keep you posted with updates about the new dates. As a result, exhibitors and attendees who have already registered and paid for our 2020 NCPTA Annual Convention will have their registrations held until the new date is shared.  Our plan is to have the 2020 NCPTA Reflections Program during the 2020 NCPTA Annual Convention’s Founder’s Day Reception on Friday night of convention weekend. Questions regarding these events should be emailed to the NCPTA State Office at
