Sue Scheff: PTA Installs the First Male President

We are definitely in an era of change! An organization once known as the Congress of Mothers will now be lead by two men! For the first time in its 113-year history, the National PTA installs a father as its National President. That’s why PTA is offering an exclusive webcast, so you can be the first to meet the new National PTA President, Chuck Saylors, who will be installed at the PTA national convention on June 28th in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

The webcast also features Byron V. Garrett, the organizations first-ever male CEO, and offers the opportunity for parents who can’t attend the convention to reap the benefits of asking each expert questions via email!

As new online strategies take the world by storm, Saylors and Garrett will focus many of their upcoming efforts on getting parents and teachers involved with new tools by offering conversation and updates on Facebook and Twitter, engaging National PTA members with these new Social Media platforms.

The webcast also offers information on important topics such as: strategic planning and priorities for the National PTA for the next two years, how National PTA is working with the Obama Administration and reauthorization of NCLB, positive impact of male involvement and ways in which men can get involved, and summer tips to stay ready for back to school season!
