Mandatory Officer Training

With the adoption of the Unified Local Unit Bylaws by a unanimous vote at the Arizona PTA State Convention in June 2015, board training is mandatory for all officers in the position of President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Training is to be completed by September 30 by all officers in those positions either via attendance at the State PTA Convention’s leadership workshops, summer leadership training in Tucson and in Northern AZ, or via eLearning courses sponsored by Arizona PTA listed at the end of this page. 

**Effective May 2017—Arizona PTA will no longer accept National PTA eLearning courses as evidence of training though we will use them for opportunities for professional development later in the PTA year.**

Local unit presidents should complete the Mandatory Training Checklist and return it to your Region Director once your officers have completed training. 

Your PTA is considered out of compliance and not in good standing until all officers have completed training. If you have new officers join your board mid-year, they must complete training within 45 days of their election to office with copies of their certificates of completion sent to your Region Director. You may also opt to have an in-person training with your Region Director as well and arrangements should be made for such training. 

If your PTA chooses to not complete training, your PTA will be considered on suspended status and will not be eligible for State or National PTA awards, incentives, grants or program participation like Reflections until the training is completed for the current board. Failure to maintain the standards of affiliation for an extended period of time could result in dissoultion for your PTA. We would like all of our PTAs to be eligible for these great benefits of memberships so please take the time, whether you are a new officer of have been on the board for multiple years, to complete training. 

Please contact your Region Director or Arizona PTA at training@azpta.org if you have any additional questions.
