- Coordinate with the representative from the Massachusetts PTA who will contact you to set up a date and time that the representative can come to one of your meetings to speak to parents, students, principals, superintendents, and/or community members regarding the benefits of becoming a PTA. The representative will also discuss with you what types of support you need/might want from Massachusetts PTA to make a smooth and effective transition.
- Work with your board and members to complete the fill-in-the-blank bylaws provided by Massachusetts PTA.
