National PTA Legislative Conference

Registration Now Open

Register now for the 2021 National PTA Virtual Legislative Conference (LegCon) March 9-11, 2021. Network with fellow PTA advocates, virtually meet with your members of Congress, hear PTA advocacy success stories and learn how to shape public policy on Capitol Hill and at home.

Please Note: Registration must be completed and paid in full by Feb. 4 in order to attend the Virtual Hill Day.

National PTA Capitol Hill Day 2021

We are thrilled to be able to offer a Virtual Hill Day to our LegCon attendees. Meetings with Members of Congress may look and feel different this year, but Hill meetings remain an enormously important advocacy tool. In fact, during COVID we have seen a 45% increase in offices that are willing to participate in video-webinars, and a 35% increase in Members of Congress who are participating in virtual meetings themselves.

National PTA has partnered with Soapbox Consulting to help ensure that your experience meeting with members and staff is seamless. To that end, if you register for LegCon 2021 by Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021, you will be automatically signed up to participate in Hill day.

Please Note: if you register after Feb. 4 you will not be able to participate in Hill day.

Virtual Meeting Details

The Friday before LegCon, Hill day attendees will be provided with a user-friendly online mobile tool with all the information you need prior to and during your meetings with Members of Congress. The online mobile tool will provide simple hyperlinks that connect you to each meeting, automated reminders to give PTA advocates a heads-up before each meeting, and a live Help Desk to assist advocates before, during and after the event.

Additionally, there will be time during LegCon for a practice session to help make sure you are comfortable with the technology.

Should you have any questions prior to hill day, please don’t hesitate to email National PTA’s Government Affairs Team at LegCon@PTA.org.
