Hoping to See You at Convention

Join us at the Convention! Celebrate PTA Membership & Programs

The members of the Membership Services Commission are the people who have been bringing you Membership Mondays. We have also done countless office hours, workshops, and trainings to help grow PTA membership statewide. We have loved getting to know so many of you and hope to be able to meet you in person at Convention. 

In PTA, we know we are all each other’s cheerleaders and we’ve been so impressed and grateful for your devotion to growing our membership this term. We have grown so strong together to build our KIND of PTA!

Learn & Network with Membership Experts At Convention

Our Convention workshops will help you and the membership chairs-elect to hit the ground running in July for the new term!

  • ABCs & 123s of Membership.  This workshop will help you learn the basics, building a membership campaign, implementing a membership drive, and continuing to make your membership stronger and more inclusive! Those that attend will get special membership kits via QR code!
  • Advanced Membership.  Are you returning to your membership role? Then this is the class for you! Learn about analyzing your membership numbers, think about surveying your membership to see what more you can do. Think strategically about underrepresented communities that should be members of your PTA!
  • DEI & PTA.  Our entire community should be members of PTA! This workshop will be a joint presentation between Membership Services Commission & Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee to give you strategies and tips to be more inclusive with your membership. DEI should be a priority for everyone! Especially for Membership!
