Washington State PTA Legislative Assembly and Advocacy Training 2014

Vancouver, Washington
Friday, October 24, 2014
Each fall, the association votes on a legislative platform; this then guides our legislative advocacy. This year, we are starting a new 2-year cycle with all-new issues. Members may update an issue or add additional issues next year.

The process began last June when members submitted proposals for consideration. Those that align with PTA’s body of positions and advance our work on behalf of children will go before delegates at Legislative Assembly and Advocacy Training event in Vancouver on October 24 and 25.

Please take 5 minutes to rate the issues in the survey and select the five issues you believe should be our top 5 issues. Your responses will help guide the votes of delegates at Legislative Assembly. The survey can be found at the following link: http://www.wastatepta.org/advocacy/index.html.


Proposed 2014-15 Issues

Legislative Principles
Legislative Principles are those issues which represent long-term efforts of the WSPTA to fulfill its mission of advocating for the health, safety, welfare and education of children and youth in Washington State. The Legislative Principles provides a comprehensive set of positions that allow the association to respond to timely and important issues not included on the yearly priority platform or in resolutions.


Resolutions
Washington State PTA resolutions outline the opinion and will of the association to address statewide problems. They require action to be taken by the WSPTA and are long-term positions.
