Thursday, March 4: Social Media Kit Reveal
Join our Communications Team at 7:00 p.m. as we reveal the March kit themed “Recruitment.” We know you are always looking for great volunteers – whether it’s to serve on the executive board, to chair an event, or simply to help out for an hour. Attendees will not only hear about the kit and hear some exciting information about the Create CA Public Will campaign’s new social media resources, but they will also get access to our Canva templates to customize our images.

California State PTA, in conjunction with our insurance broker Association Insurance Management (AIM), recently launched a new Workers’ Compensation Annual Payroll Report Form and submission process.
This year there is an updated report form that is simpler and easier to complete, a new, completely online submission process, and you must now send reports directly to AIM, not your council or district PTA.
On the insurance page of the California State PTA website (under the heading “New Workers’ Comp Annual Payroll Report Process”) you’ll find full details of the new process, including links to the online report form, links to paper forms (in English and Spanish), and documents which provide step-by-step instructions on how to fill out the forms.
We also went over the new process during our recent Insurance webinar. To watch a recording of it, click here.
