The PTA Council President

Region 1 Council: Manchester

Region 3 Councils: Chesire, Hamden, Milford, North Haven, West Haven

Region 4 Councils:  Fairfield, Greenwich, Ridgefield, Stratford, Trumbull, Westport, 

If your PTA is part of one of these councils, ask your council president or delegate to provide you information on what is going on at a state-wide level. Connecticut PTSA’s Board of Directors meet at least four times a year to discuss issues that are of interest to all PTAs in the state. If your area is not represented at Connecticut PTSA’s board meetings, ask your council president to appoint a delegate to act as a conduit of information between the state organization and your council and units.

In order to form a council, two or more units must decide to work together as an entity. A council is a group of local units organized under the authority of the state PTA for purposes of conference, leadership training, and coordination of efforts of the local units. Not all areas have councils.
