Region 9 Service Delivery Team

Service delivery team members are volunteers who provide support to PTA leaders in the region. The function of the region service delivery team is to promote the purposes of WSPTA; to assist in carrying out service, training and support to the local PTAs and councils within the region.  A main responsibility of the team is to coordinate leadership development opportunities for local PTAs and councils in the region through conferences, workshops, and other training opportunities. Anyone interested in helping out at the region level should contact the region director. Learn more here.

Washington State PTA is currently receiving and reviewing applications. Service delivery team member names and contact information will be posted here once they are approved.

Council Support

The functions of a council are to promote the purposes of WSPTA; to provide services, information, support, and leadership training for local PTAs in their area. Councils promote cooperation among local PTAs and encourage projects promoting children’s health, safety, welfare and/or education in the local PTAs and the community. Your Council Representative listed above can assist you, or put you in contact with a council volunteer or region service delivery team volunteer who can best provide the support you need.

Councils are comprised of each local PTA in their designated area as defined by their charter. The local PTA, as an entity, not the individual members, comprise the membership of the council. Councils are typically organized around a school district. However, other local PTAs may become members of councils with mutual consent.
