What I Did for a Free Tote Bag

Well, I did it. After six years of being at the same elementary school, dodging the PTA nominating committee year after year, I had used up all of my excuses (“No, not this year"... “I’ll help out wherever anyone needs me” ... “My work schedule makes it hard”).  

I said yes to officially taking the position of head cheese, a.k.a. president of the San Juan Elementary PTA. This is often met with “Congratulations!” or “I’m so sorry" or one of my personal favorites, “Does your husband know?”

To prepare myself for next year’s role, I was encouraged to participate in the California Sate PTA Convention held at the Long Beach Convention Center. The one-day workshop was titled, “PTA Presidents’ Boot Camp—We Want You!” I had visions of dropping and giving them 20 if I didn’t know the definition of  By Law No. 4236.

Until the boot camp, my experience with the PTA had been localized to San Juan Elementary. After attending the California State PTA Convention, though, I realized that PTAs exist for more reasons other than to host bake sales. And, I discovered there are actually reasons why women wear hand-crafted t-shirts and scream at conventions like sorority girls.

I made my way to downtown Long Beach equipeed with my iPhone, large bottle of water and snacks (anything past the Costa Mesa IKEA is long distance driving). Large parking marquees directed people towards either the Dalai Lama or the California PTA ... I supposed I was bound toward some sort of enlightenment with whichever direction I would choose.

On my short walk to the convention center, I noticed I was unequipped for boot camp. Participants, mostly women, armed themselves with tote bags, rolled filing carts and buckled under the weight of 5-inch binders. Some even had special team t-shirts that gave props to their respective districts.
