Map and Directions

The Washington State PTA – made up of every local PTA and PTSA in the state – was established as an advocacy organization more than 100 years ago. Our vision is that every child’s potential becomes a reality. Our mission is to make PTA a powerful voice for children; a relevant resource for families, schools and communities; and an advocate for the well-being and education of all children.

The Legislative Assembly and Advocacy Training event provides opportunities for PTA leadership training, advocacy training and is the venue for voting delegates to examine issues submitted by members. Voting delegates will debate and vote on the issues that will make up our 2015-2016 legislative priorities. Please accept our invitation to join PTA members from around the state in Vancouver to take part in the WSPTA child advocacy programs.
