A council is a group of PTA units organized under the authority of the California State PTA for the purpose of conference, leadership training, and coordination of the efforts of the member units. A council provides the units within a city, county, or area an opportunity for cooperation in promoting their common interests and conference regarding their common problems. It coordinates the work of the council’s units with other agencies or organizations in the area working for children and youth. It serves as a channel of communication between the state and district PTA and the units.
Each council represents a certain area or district within the city of Los Angeles and there are 8 councils within the Los Angeles Tenth District, and 102 PTA units as represented by the 5 councils. If a unit officer has questions, it is recommended that the local council be contacted first.
