Train Like A Beast: Fall Bootcamps and Campfire Chats

Bootcamps are geared for new officers with less than years of experience (but all are welcome for a refresher course).  We will get down to basics and teach you everything you need to know about running your PTA!

Campfire Chats are geared for veteran leaders with four or more years of experience.  This is time to sit around out virtual campfire and ask questions of our panel and share ideas.


Select your daytime or evening slot for the bootcamp(s) you would like to attend.
