Long Beach Council of PTAs (LBCPTA) was established in 1909.  It encompasses 45 unit PTAs, consisting of, currently, 19,089 members.

The purpose of the council is to provide leadership training, coordination of the efforts of the units, cooperation in promoting the common interests of the units and conference regarding common problems. We coordinate the work of the units with other agencies and organizations in the area. We also serve as a channel of communications between the state and district PTA and our units.

We invite all parents, students, teachers, staff, and members of the community to join! See the ‘Join PTA’ tab for more information.

A Message from the Council President…

Greetings PTA leaders and wonderful volunteers!!
I am honored and pleased to be able to serve as your council president for the second year. As I finish my 2-year term, I hope I can continue to assist you in this rewarding journey of promoting the welfare of our children and strengthening the relationships between families and our schools and communities.
I want to thank you for accepting your leadership roles and express the importance you all are making not only in the lives of your own children, but all the children in your school. Let’s remind ourselves why we do what we do and adhere to the mission of PTA to positively impact the lives of all children and families.
Looking at the history of Long Beach Council PTA’s accomplishments for the past 100+ years, I am proud to be a part of this great organization in which you all are a part of as well. Our goal is to provide support and training to you at the unit level and to assist you in making your term of office as successful as possible. Please utilize your area advisor, the financial team, me and any other council officer to assist wherever and whenever needed.
Good Luck and Best Wishes to you all!

The National PTA (National Congress of Parents and Teachers) is a volunteer educational organization, founded in Washington, D.C., in 1897. Branches of the National PTA have been established in all 50 United States, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, and in schools for American dependents in Europe and the Pacific area.

The California State PTA (California Congress of Parents, Teachers, and Students, Inc.) is a branch of the National PTA, serving as a connecting link between the national organization and its membership within the state.

District PTAs are geographical divisions of the California State PTA, established to carry out its programs. All PTA districts organized after July 1, 1980, are required to have number designations.

Councils of PTAs/PTSAs are created by the California State PTA for the purpose of conference, leadership training, and coordination of efforts of the member units.

Unit PTAs are organized and chartered in conformity with rules and regulations as prescribed in the bylaws of the California State PTA. These units are self-governing bodies for the purpose of planning programs and activities to meet local community needs. However, they are required to observe policies of the California State PTA and/or National PTA.
