Good leadership is the key to the survival of a unit. Good leadership creates a climate of support and mutual respect among the members of the local unit. Good leadership discovers and makes use of the special talents and abilities of its members.
Good PTA leaders channel information from the Iowa and National PTA to local unit members. They help members reach the goals of the unit and keep the unit focused on the PTA Mission and Purpose. Good PTA leaders conduct productive meetings, familiarize themselves with PTA policies and procedures, and participate in leadership training opportunities throughout the year. They delegate responsibility and mentor future leaders for the unit.
Good leaders are not born. They grow and develop their skills each and every day!
