Kansas PTA 106th Annual Convention
May 1 - May 3
2020 Convention Update
A Note from Kansas PTA President, Lauri DeNooy
As we all know, the situation with COVID-19 has drastically altered everyone’s plans for the foreseeable future. Kansas PTA’s priority has always been the health and safety of our members, constituent organizations as well as our educators/leaders. Kansas PTA has been continually monitoring the situation and will be following the necessary guidelines/recommendations as laid out by the Kansas Department of Health and the Kansas Department of Education.
After reading through the Kansas PTA Bylaws –
Article XV Cancellation of Convention: Section 1: In the event of some great emergency such as war, epidemic or
natural or man-made disaster, the Board of Managers of the Kansas PTA shall have the authority to determine
whether or not the convention shall be held . . . “
The Kansas PTA Executive Board voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 Kansas PTA State Convention and to postpone the Kansas PTA Awards Ceremony. This is in the best interest of all parties.
Your Kansas PTA Executive Board and Board of Managers wants to take this situation and turn into a positive. We are considering holding a Leadership Conference in July if the situation with Covid-19 has been resolved and it is considered safe to do so.
