Membership Theme Reminder 2017:


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 adding your voice to advocacy efforts on behalf of all children, helping your local PTA and sending a strong message that you support children and families.


Membership Challenge 2017:  Add 17 members by March 31.


Resolve to “do good things for kids” in 2017 by adding 17 new members to your local PTA! Your PTA will be recognized at the 2017 annual convention in San Jose on the Membership Wall of Fame and with a special convention ribbon. No application is required: Simply remit dues through channels for at least 17 new members between January 1 and March 31.


Membership Challenge/Cash Prizes: $1500, $500, $250/Application deadline: March 10, 2017.


This year, we are launching the “DO GOOD THINGS FOR YOUR PTA MEMBERSHIP” challenge with several options to qualify.  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.
