URGENT Call for Leaders & Volunteers


The LPTSA has been operating without a full Leadership Board for the past two years.  Of course, the pandemic kept our students remote and our programs limited, and in this past transition year back to in-person instruction, events and programs continued to be limited.  All signs indicate that schools will continue to be in person and LPTSA activity can resume in full.
