Each fall, the association votes on a legislative platform; this then guides our legislative advocacy. This year, we are starting a new 2-year cycle with all-new issues. Members may update an issue or add additional issues next year.
The process began last June when members submitted proposals for consideration. Those that align with PTA’s body of positions and advance our work on behalf of children will go before delegates at Legislative Assembly and Advocacy Training event in Vancouver on October 24 and 25.
