LAUNCH: Summer Leadership Seminar will be at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas - July 17 – 19th.
Registration is now open on the Texas PTA website.

Editor's note: This is an AWESOME opportunity for your local PTA leadership to get all sorts of training in one place, as well as network with fellow PTA leaders from around the state. I did not really believe it until I experienced it for myself - but now I am definitely a proponent of the time and expense involved.
