WSPTA 44th Annual Legislative Assembly @ Bellevue College AND Online
Oct 15 – Oct 16 all-day

Legislative Assembly 2022

Planning is now underway for WSPTA’s 44th annual Legislative Assembly, October 15-16, which will be unlike any before it!

At its heart, legislative assembly is about participation. PTA members submit new positions to be added to WSPTA’s policy platform, volunteers on the advocacy committee, resolutions committee and board of directors review them, and delegates at legislative assembly amend, debate and vote on whether to adopt them.

This year, WSPTA is planning for legislative assembly to be a hybrid event for more inclusive participation. Delegates will be able to attend and vote in person at Bellevue College or remotely.


Emergency Prep Meeting @ Online via Zoom
Oct 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Agenda to be sent via email to local unit E-Prep Chairs.

Zoom link will be added prior to the meeting.
