In both schools and communities, PTA volunteers are recognized as leaders and advocates. PTA includes an ever-changing set of volunteers, and developing leadership skills is an important step toward creating successful activities and programs and managing the business needs of the PTA.

For officers, chairmen, and program coordinators, the PTA provides opportunities for both students and adults to become effective leaders. PTA training, knowledge and skills can be obtained through a variety of resources and is designed so that everyone has access to learning. Some of the many resources available to you are available through Council which offers leadership materials, individual mentoring (upon request), local unit development training (upon request), and council training workshops (fall and spring).

In this section, you will find tools and resources designed to guide new PTA leaders to serve effectively as officers and chairmen. Within each local leader page are links to job specific resources (webinars, e-learning, materials) offered through Texas PTA and National PTA, as well as, contact information for your Council Representative. 

Leadership is not a position or a title, it is action and example.
