Growth & Development Chair
The Virginia PTA University is an incentive program to encourage leadership development. Each level recognizes the accomplishment of PTA members who have earned recognition by completing several requirements.
Requirements include attendance at a variety of workshops, courses, and PTA events. Any PTA member may participate in the program. There is no time limit for completion of the requirements to earn your “Virginia PTA Degree”.
Transcripts are available at all state events and may be signed by any state board member, district director, council president, or workshop presenter. Completed transcripts may be sent to your District Director or the Vice President of Training. Participants in this program are required to keep track of their official transcript.
Recipients will receive recognition at the 2019 Virginia PTA Annual Meeting.
