NCPTA 2019 Annual Convention – May 17-18, Charlotte, NC

Join us in Charlotte as the North Carolina Parent Teacher Association (NCPTA) celebrates 100 years.  This “Centennial Celebration” will occur during the 2019 NCPTA Convention (May 17-May 18) at UNC Charlotte-City Center (Charlotte, NC).

The Convention presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to engage and learn with your peers from across the state and is designed for parents, teachers, principals, central office staff, and community organizers/partners.

This year’s theme is “Celebrating the Legacy and Continuing the Journey”, and our focus is on Leadership Matters — because it does!  We’d like to take a look at

  1. Diversity and Inclusion
  2. Special Education
  3. PTA Leadership and Governance

We’ll explore how these areas have affected our schools, state, and nation.

NCPTA would like to invite you to share that success story during a breakout session at the 2019 NCPTA Convention.

Sessions will be 75 minutes in length. A screen/projector, table, podium (table top or free standing), and base-level sound will be provided by NCPTA. Please be prepared to bring your own laptop or other presentation device and the appropriate connecting cords to reach a PC-based system.

NCPTA encourages sessions that demonstrate effectiveness as related to an identified need. The session should help equip school, district, and community leaders with successful strategies that can make a positive difference for students, teachers, district leaders, and/or the community. Presentations must align with one of the convention’s three focus areas 1) Diversity and Inclusion, 2) Special Education, and 3) PTA Leadership and Governance.

All presentations must explicitly spotlight the importance of PTA membership and advocacy.
