Lake County Council PTA:  The LCC is a PTA made up of early childhood, elementary, middle and high school PTA's and PTSA’s in Lake County, Ohio.  Each unit pays an annual membership fee of $65 to belong to Lake County Council PTA.

Lake County Council’s purpose is to:

1.    Provide PTA units in Lake County a place to network and discuss ideas and concerns.  

2.    Educate units on how to carry out PTA’s mission.

3.    Provide delegates with current legislation that National and/or Ohio PTA in supporting or monitoring. 

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month.  Locations vary. Check the website for up-to-date meeting information at http://lakecountycouncil.org or email them at lakecountycouncil@hotmail.com.

You do not need to be a delegate or officer to attend a LCC meeting!!

However, each PTA Unit asks for a parent volunteer to act as their LCC Delegate.

Delegates are asked to attend the LCC PTA meetings and report back to their units as to what was discussed at the LCC meetings, and share legislative information.
