Foundations: Leader Orientation

All new Board members are required to complete this leadership training. To make it easier for individuals to get the training at their convenience, Texas PTA has made it available on their website, However, be forewarned that finding it on the site is challenging.

(1) Go to

(2) Log in using the 2013-14 login/password (included with your membership card)

(3) Click on Intranet Home in upper right section of page

(4) Choose View Member Area from left side menu buttons

At this time, Foundations training is the only option available, but it appears to have three "modules."

A council board member who was planning to do the online training reported that you may run into issues with your browser while trying to access the training. If you have more than one browser installed on your computer and have problems, you may wish to try an alternative browser. Examples of browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome.
