Convention 2020

COVID-19 may have postponed NCPTA’s 2020 Convention but NCPTA still has a desire to engage NCPTA leaders in motivating and informative workshop sessions on current issues, advocacy, and leadership that will help participants develop programs, projects, and activities in their local PTAs. We are excited to announce that on June 27, 2020 we will host NCPTA’s First Virtual Learning Summer Symposium. The Symposium will be held via Zoom Meeting; it will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 3:15 p.m. During the Symposium, we will feature breakout sessions on 1) PTA Leadership and Governance, 2) Male Engagement, and 3) Leading with COVID-19 in Mind. We are requesting your presence during the Symposium.

NCPTA’s First Virtual Learning Summer Symposium promises to be a day you will not forget. Our Opening Session will feature Governor Roy Cooper, NCPTA President Harold Dixon, NCPTA President-Elect Francelia Burwell, and many more. Registration is FREE for current NCPTA members and $10 for Non-NCPTA Members. Register today; once registered you will receive additional information via email including the Zoom link.

With this in mind, NCPTA has decided to postpone the 2020 NCPTA Reflections Celebration (previously scheduled for April 25 in Durham) and 2020 NCPTA Annual Convention (previously scheduled for May 14-May 16 in Durham). While NCPTA is postponing these events to later dates, since the duration of the coronavirus crisis is unknown, we will have to keep you posted with updates about the new dates. As a result, exhibitors and attendees who have already registered and paid for our 2020 NCPTA Annual Convention will have their registrations held until the new date is shared. Our plan is to have the 2020 NCPTA Reflections Program during the 2020 NCPTA Annual Convention’s Founder’s Day Reception on Friday night of convention weekend. Questions regarding these events should be emailed to the NCPTA State Office at

Additionally, the NCPTA State Office is closed until further notice. Staff are working remotely so you can still access them via email ( and phone (919-787-0534). Please know that even in the crisis facing our nation, our NCPTA team will continue providing quality service. Let us know if we can assist you in any way.
