Along the e-learning courses available through National PTA, the Wisconsin PTA hosts monthly virtual trainings on topics you choose. Our Leadership Summit, Expo, LegCon, and Convention offer training, networking, and a chance to connect on various other topics.


Your local unit or council is affiliated with the Wisconsin PTA which means that you can use our group exempt status and the PTA/PTSA name as long as you complete keep your unit in good standing. The items to keep you in good standing with the Wisconsin PTA Standards of Affiliation are the same things that all individual non-profit organizations need to do. We ask you to report to us so that we are able to help when there are questions and we can stay ahead of any deeper problems such as a local unit losing their non-profit status due to not filing taxes for three years.
