Director's Message -
Thank you to everyone who attended Packet Orientation on August 3, 2017! Now that school is in session and you have the new Illinois PTA resources in hand it is time to start PTA member training. PTA training is for all PTA members but required by your bylaws for all board members and officers. The more the membership knows, the easier job it is for the board and the officers. Our Fall training has be scheduled and can be referenced
and on our calendar. Please share the flyer with your community and be sure to register prior to each training so that handouts are available.
PTA Local Unit Honor Awards are now being reviewed. Be sure to attend and be recognized at our Annual Meeting on October 16, 2017 this year.
Our Annual Meeting Invitation and Response form is available now. Please plan on joining us for dinner and celebration with our PTA community. We look forward to seeing PTA presidents, board members, delegates, administrators, school board members as well as members from our State Board of Directors at this once a year event. This year we will be electing a nominating committee (who will search and slate for a new Northwest Cook Region Director) as well as recognizing the wonderful programs that our PTAs bring to our children!
Be sure to file the appropriate forms with the IRS. If your fiscal year ended on June 30th your filing is due to the IRS no later than November 15th. Have any questions, let us know. It is better to be early, rather than late.
