National PTA 125th Anniversary Convention

Be a Presenter at Our Convention 

The call for workshop presenters is now open and we need your voice to make our milestone convention a success!

Our annual convention will be June 14–19, 2022 and we’re looking for dynamic leaders to present sessions focused on:

  • Diversity Equity & Inclusion
  • Growing Membership
  • Youth Involvement
  • Running your PTA
  • Marketing your PTA
  • Elevating the PTA Brand
  • Programs & Family Engagement

This year, we will be offering in-person workshops as well as a select few pre-recorded workshops. Workshop presenters will be selected through a blind peer-review process.

Thoughtful Workshops


Requirements


To apply, you will need to:

  • Provide 2-3 learning objectives for your workshop
  • Provide a workshop description outlining what you want attendees to know about your session.  
  • Submit presenter bios, including why you and other presenters are qualified to present on the proposed topic (150 words max) 
  • Provide contact information for all proposed presenters

All proposed presenters will be notified of their workshop status by the end of February. Each selected presenter will be asked to provide a headshot, attend a presenter orientation (virtually) and submit PowerPoint for approval prior to convention.

Applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. PST, Jan. 4.



Application Tips


  • Be specific and share what attendees would learn from your session. Volunteer reviewers rank your submission based on the information you provide.
  • Remember National PTA’s Convention audience has traditionally been made up of mostly state, regional, district and council PTA members, many of whom train local leaders. This year, there will also be a track of workshops geared toward local leaders.
  • Write your bio and session description (each 150 words maximum) as you would want others to see it in the Convention App. Write in complete sentences using third person point of view (he/she/we).
  • Send questions to PTATraining@PTA.org.
