Rose Acerra has been a dedicated PTA advocate since her first son started school over 25 years ago. Rose currently serves as the
Immediate Past President and the Federal Legislative chairman for New Jersey PTA and was elected to the National PTA Board of
Directors in June 2019.
Advocacy is a big part of Rose’s PTA journey; she has worked to get parents a seat at the table whenever it was important to have a parent
voice. Acerra’s efforts were recognized in 2017 when she was selected as the National PTA Shirley Igo Advocate of the Year award.
Rose enjoys sharing her passion for PTA with others and spending time with friends and her family, including her husband, Robert, and
her three sons, Robert Jr, Richard, and Raymond. In her spare time, she loves the beach, cruises, and reading.
