Region Director Message
It’s been a busy start to the new school year for everyone, from Open

I would like to give a big thank you to all the local units and councils
who have completed the Bylaws Trainings (you know who you are).

who are in need of training, this is a great opportunity to fulfill that

who are in that situation.
If your local unit/council have recently changed elected officers
please let both Melissa Anderson email@example.com (at
State) as well as myself know firstname.lastname@example.org.

year. I plan to join every single PTA that asked me, and remind you
to please mail me a membership card, once my form has been
As the holidays approach take time out for yourself and enjoy your
family. PTA can and will survive without you for a couple of days.
Happy Holidays to each and every one of you and thank you for ALL
that YOU do for our kids.
