MEMBERSHIP TIP: The New Year Calls For New Membership Campaigns
Let’s ring in the new year by bringing in new members to our PTAs so we can continue to support children and families in our communities!
This is the ideal time to try some new membership campaign ideas! Start small with 22 new members for 2022, or aim big with 125 new members in January to celebrate 125 years of PTA! Whatever your goal, it makes a difference when you know what you’re aiming for.
California State PTA Membership Service Commission’s Favorite Resource
As we’ve counted down to kick-off the new year, we’ve also counted 101 Ways to Increase PTA/PTSA Membership. Loaded with ideas, this is our top pick because it gives you the opportunity and inspiration to apply new ideas to your membership campaign. As you read through these ideas, look at your membership and decide where you need to focus in 2022 to expand and enrich your PTA/PTSA membership in the new year. Let’s continue to grow in 2022.
Get Students Involved
One great membership idea is to focus on the students! Get them excited, involved, and help them join the PTA so they can find their voice. Involving students can give your PTSA more perspective and understanding of what your school needs to thrive. Learn more at Building Student Membership or in the toolkit. And remember, students of any age can be PTA members, whether you have a PTA or PTSA.
This is also a great time to publicize the California State PTA Graduating High School Senior Scholarship and the membership requirements for scholarship applicants.
