Virginia PTA is divided into six regions so that a closer working relationship with districts, councils, and local units may be achieved. A district director representative, elected by the directors from each district, represents the combined interests of all districts in the state, on the state executive committee. These representatives are elected at the spring Board of Managers meeting to serve a one-year term and may serve in this capacity for two consecutive terms.
