President’s Message

My name is Heidi Nicolazzo and I am your new Wisconsin PTA President for the term of 2019-2021. I am so excited to be working with all of you for the next few years. This is going to be a great time of change with moving our association towards the future.

I can’t believe that the summer is almost over, and Back To School Time is just right around the corner. Unit’s, make sure that you have wrapped up your previous year by doing your audit (financial review), your 990’s and make sure your bylaws are up to date. We want to make sure you are in good standing or on your way to becoming in good standing.

Wisconsin PTA has a fantastic board, many who are new this term. We all are bringing new, fresh ideas to the table that we can not wait to share with you, our members.

We will be using Memberhub again this year as our Membership Platform. There are many, many abilities Memberhub provides to make membership reporting a breeze. If you have not signed up yet, or have a question about something in Memberhub, please feel free to give Sheila Endicott, our State Office Manager,  a call at (608) 244-1455, or send her an email at She will be happy to help, or if need be, she will direct your question to the right board member to assist you further. There is also a feature in Memberhub where you can upload your audit (financial review) and a copy of your 990 submission confirmation.

We, here at WI PTA, are ready to serve our members and units. Feel free to follow us on Facebook – Wisconsin PTA, and the subgroup – 2019-’20 WI PTA Leader’s Group for upcoming events, deadlines, things happening around the state and news from National PTA.

Let us all join together, and raise our voices as one! Advocacy is the background for our children…..Every Child…..One Voice!

 Heidi Nicolazzo, Wisconsin PTA President
