Fulfilling The Training Requirement 
WHY the emphasis on training?  As board members, it is our fiduciary responsibility to manage the corporation in the best interest of its members as a whole. To run programs and handle budgets responsibly, knowledge of the applicable state and federal regulations is key to operate your non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable corporation.

Training is what helps to give our local units credibility. A well-trained and informed board should be a great selling point to encourage the community to join a local unit. Trained board members should be proud of stepping up to the responsibility in their local unit.

During the 2011 WSPTA Convention, the delegates approved a training bylaw because of how important training is to the success of local units and councils. If you hold an elected position voted on by the general membership in your local unit, this bylaw requires that you attend training.
