National PTA Member Benefits

The power of PTA is in its membership. Every additional member adds power when your PTA goes before a SBDM council, school board, or speaks to a school board member. The number of your PTA adds clout when you contact state and federal legislators. With enough members, PTA can and does improve education, health and safety for every child.

Membership Card Facts        

  • A card is issued to one person, not to a family.
  • Membership is required in order for a person to vote or hold office at their local PTA.
  • Membership in one unit does not constitute membership and voting privilege in another unit.
  • Every card issued to a local unit must be accounted for.
  • Membership campaigns should last the entire school year. Consider having a handout for the school office to give to new parents, inviting them to join the PTA. Put different “ads” in your newsletters, have a membership table at all school functions…, continually recruit members!

Outstanding Membership Campaign

When are you truly a PTA member?

“A person has truly become a PTA member when their circle of concern stretches beyond their own to include all children. A parent is truly a PTA member when their decisions are decided by a deep and abiding sense of responsibility for other peoples’ children as well as their own. Whatever you want for your own children—want for all children.”Author unknown
