Learn about Being an Advocate at the Nov 14 Shoreline Special Needs PTSA Meeting

Friday, November 10, 2017

Come learn about Advocacy in Action - How PTAs Can Affect Change at the Shoreline Special Needs PTSA Chapter's November 14 member meeting.

Nancy Chamberlain, legislative director for the Washington State PTA, will describe what advocacy looks like within the PTA, current platform issues (including those of special interest to the chapter) and what local advocacy can look like within a school district.

The state PTA's legislative platform can be found here. Members of the chapter's inclusion committee will give a mini-training in ways to discuss inclusive education that move the conversation forward. How do we quickly answer questions and misconceptions in the moments that matter?

The meeting is in the Ballinger Room at the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE. Networking starts at 6:30pm, followed by a short business meeting at 7pm and then presentations. We adjourn by 8:30pm.

New this year: if childcare is a challenge for you, don’t let it stop you from coming. We’ll have a kid-friendly area set up in the back of the room. Continuing from last year: stay if you can and join other family members at a Shoreline business for continued socializing.
