WSPTA Legislative Assembly

Legislative Assembly 2021

The 43rd Annual Legislative Assembly took place in a virtual format on October 23 and 24, 2021. The purpose of legislative assembly is to determine the legislative priorities of WSPTA, to educate and mobilize advocates, and to advance WSPTA’s legislative program.

Thank you to all of our attendees and guests who helped to make this such a successful event.

Stay tuned for information on next year’s event! It is one you won’t want to miss as we will be voting on a new platform to see us through the 2023 and 2024 legislative sessions. We will be accepting submissions on the issues that are important to you and your community in early spring. Look for more information about access to forms and deadlines on our website and in upcoming newsletters. To learn more about WSPTA’s priorities visit our Advocacy page for our short-term platform, Legislative Principles page, and Resolutions page.

The Washington State PTA legislative platform is a two-year platform to mirror the Washington state legislative cycle. On the even-numbered years, the new platform is voted on by members at the legislative assembly in the fall. The top five issues become our short-term platform and consist of our priority issues when advocating throughout the year. Other issues are placed on an “also supported” list.
