LAUNCH was so well organized and jammed pack full of different training sessions, workshops, and leadership talks that challenged the thinking of our group. Each training session focused on achieving the objective of the session and allowed PTA Leaders and other attendees to be a part of the discussion. The facilitators had breath of perspective and offered a “bag” of effective tools.
A lot of hard work has been underway since attending LAUNCH. Our Board and committee chairs have grown to over 25. We have increased engagement and expanded programs drastically, with parents asking to volunteer regularly. There were so many key take-aways and I credit LAUNCH for providing the perfect “LAUNCH PAD” for our newly built PTA.
For those of us that were very new to PTA or never volunteered before, training sessions allowed introverted attendees to sit back, take notes, absorb, and think individually. The entire event was tailored to ensure that everyone contributed, and everyone took away information that was sure to make their PTA year a success!
