Welcome from the 2015-2017 Legislative Chair
by Tynettia Elrod on 8/9/2015


I would like to take this time to welcome you and to introduce myself, Tynettia Elrod, as your 2015-2017 Legislative Chair for Georgia PTA. For the past two years, I have served on the Georgia PTA Board of Directors in the role the Early Childhood Education Chair. I was also an active member of the Legislative , Bylaws, Youth Services, Education, and CLT Key Team committees. As a member of the Legislative committee, I spent numerous hours at the Capitol meeting our Legislators and attending committee meetings to become a more effective advocate. One of my goals this year is to get more of our PTA members to visit the Capitol and speak with their Legislators. We need to strengthen our voices and be at the table before decisions affecting our children are made. In fact, our primary advocacy goal is to empower our members by educating and equipping them with the vital information and strategies to advocate effectively. What better way than to have our members present at ground zero where highly important decisions formulate.  

I look forward to meeting you all at our Legislative advocacy events this year. Our first event will be Advocacy Day, October 6, 2015. Be on the watch for more detailed information on this event. I do encourage our PTA leaders to redistribute all communications coming from the Georgia PTA Legislative committee to your membership. Again, welcome and I am looking forward to a successful advocacy year!
