Message from the President
Welcome to the Santa Barbara Area Council of PTAs. My name is Jennifer Hinrichs, your new Council PTA president..
Santa Barbara Area Council of PTAs serves 25 schools in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area. We are here to make sure the PTA Units are in good standing, to provide help with training and documents update, and to support your school PTA in any way we can. In addition, we feature the following events annually:
- Training: With the assistance of the 15th District PTA and State PTA, we offer online and in-person training for your PTA board. We also offer individual support and financial information when needed.
- Association Meetings: A great opportunity for PTA board members from all schools to network, learn more about PTA and resources in the community, and vote on important PTA-related motions.
- Reflections: Each year we participate in the themed National PTA Reflections visual art/performing arts competition. You can find details at www.capta.org. Consult your school to see if they are participating and find out when the deadline is. Our Council holds a reception in January or February each year to honor students who are promoted to Council (citywide) and District (county) level.
- Honorary Service Awards Reception: At the end of May each year, held at the County Schools Auditorium. If your school participates in the PTA Honorary Service Awards program, we would like to honor your honorees as well with a dinner and ceremony of recognition. Please let us know if you are participating
Hope to meet you soon!
SB Council President
