National PTA is composed of 55 state congresses and nearly 26,000 local units in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Department of Defense Schools in Europe and the Pacific.
National PTA, as directed by its board of directors, provides leadership, programs, support, and resources to its members at all levels of the association. State PTAs are the liaison between the local PTA and National PTA, helping each to function effectively and to support and sustain the other.
PTAs at the local level are valuable assets to their school communities by providing educational and parent involvement information, resources, events, and activities. They are linked to the state PTA and National PTA, forming a nationwide network of members working on behalf of all children and youth.
The work and operations of National PTA, as directed by its board of directors, is carried out through its headquarters office in Alexandria, Virginia. BOARD MEMBER MATERIALS
