Leadership Training Breakfast

The Pleasanton PTA Council is hosting a leadership training/get-together breakfast 
on Thursday, May 11, at Vic's All-Star Kitchen (201-A Main Street), starting at 9:30 am.

All current and incoming Pleasanton PTA Executive Board members are invited to gather for sharing and leadership development. A hot breakfast will be provided for all PTA officers.

Depending on participation, we may break into groups by officer position (e.g., treasurers, parliamentarians, presidents) so that unit officers can get to know one another, as well as their PTA Council counterparts, for training and support.

Please RSVP by Friday, May 5, so that we can provide Vic's with a headcount for breakfast.
