Region Highlight

Christine LeVey- Genesee Valley Region

This is my third year being involved at the Region level and I highly recommend unit leaders get involved with their Region. I get to see a glimpse of what goes on at the State and National levels and I have made some lasting friendships while witnessing the power of PTA advocacy. I enjoy hearing from PTA units and sharing my knowledge about MemberHub or membership building strategies. There is so much greatness out there that we never hear about–we all need to talk more and share ideas. Make the most of this home time and reach out to everyone in your community. We are stronger together. #PTAYourWay
