POSITION STATEMENTS & RESOLUTIONS

UNDERSTANDING POSITION
STATEMENTS & RESOLUTIONS

As a membership organization- and the nation's oldest and largest child advocacy organization at that- our advocacy is driven by position statements and resolutions.

A position statement is an official document outlining the will, or intent of the associations to address problems, situations, or concerns that affect children and youth and require action to seek resolution on the issue.  National PTA has adopted hundreds of position statements on education, health and safety issues since its first convention in 1897.

National PTA considers resolutions at its annual convention. A convention resolution is brought forward at convention because of its importance, length or complexity. Who can bring forward a resolution? A local, council, district or state PTA.
