A Word From Our President

MDPTA President Elizabeth Ysla Leight



Dear PTA Members and Colleagues,

I look forward to seeing you at the 2017 102nd Annual Maryland PTA Convention in Columbia, Maryland in July at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center.  Our theme "Empowering a New Generation of Leaders" reflects Maryland PTA's commitment to building strong PTA leaders and working toward education excellence.

The Maryland PTA Convention is my favorite meeting of the year because it brings us together in a casual setting to network; learn about new topics, share business practices, to discuss topics of interest, and to socialize with friends – both new and old. Over the next few months, we hope you will take time to return to the Maryland PTA website to review announcements regarding State and National speakers who will address timely issues of interest to PTA leaders.

For now, it is important for you to register and take advantage of the Maryland PTA Early Bird Registration beginning on March 31st and continuing until May 31st.  If new officers are elected, we hope they will come to the Maryland PTA Convention to receive important officer training, especially Treasurer training.

I am sure you will have a great time at the Maryland PTA 102nd Annual Convention and would like to thank the PTA volunteer members who have taken time to create an exceptional program for you. I look forward to seeing you in Columbia and hope you find exploring the local cultural activities and restaurants just plain fun.  

Warmest Regards,

   Elizabeth Ysla Leight, Esq.
