Promoting PTA Membership: Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Three things you can do to build membership this week.

Many PTAs are beginning to shift gears to focus on programs and services that connect families, schools and communities. During this time, it’s also important to keep the excitement going for PTA membership. Here are three easy but effective things you can do this week to help build membership:

  1. Ask three family members or friends to join PTA. It’s that simple!
  2. Introduce yourself to three new parents at school. Share with them the value of PTA and ask them to join, too!
  3. Download and share this new PTA membership flier — available in six languages — with your school community!

Membership challenge does good things for kids AND your PTA

Building your PTA membership can really pay off for your school. Not only will your PTA have the support of parents and families, but your PTA could qualify for awesome membership challenge incentives.

The California State PTA membership theme for the 2016-2017 school year is…DO GOOD THINGS FOR KIDS – JOIN PTA. The theme is a reminder that, just by joining PTA, you are helping your child and your local PTA, adding your voice to advocacy efforts on behalf of all children and sending a strong message that you support children and families.

This year, we are launching the “DO GOOD THINGS FOR YOUR PTA MEMBERSHIP” challenge with several options to qualify. The challenge is designed to support PTAs in their marketing efforts and to share some strategies about how to share the good things your PTA is doing for kids. Complete at least seven strategies — three required and four optional — and your PTA will receive an exclusive ribbon at convention, receive a mention on California State PTA’s website and qualify for a chance to win some money for your PTA.

All PTAs in good standing that qualify will be entered into a drawing to win one of three cash prizes: $1,500, $500 and $250.

Applications must be received by March 10, 2017, by 5 p.m. to qualify.

Submit applications by March 10, 2017 by 5 p.m. to qualify. There are two ways to send your application directly to California State PTA:

  • Complete the online application (preferred)
  • Mail applications to California State PTA, ATTN: Membership Challenge Application, 2327 L Street, Sacramento, CA, 95816
