Three Ways Your PTA Can Benefit Even More with Membership Increase


Three ways your PTA can benefit even more when you increase membership


Win a free convention registration!

Teachers matter in PTA, and members matter too! PTA units that have 100 percent of their full-time, home-based credentialed teachers join PTA AND have total membership numbers (as of January 31, 2013) that exceed their June 30, 2012 total will receive one free registration to the 2013 California State PTA Convention.

If you are not sure what your unit membership total was last year, please contact your council, district or California State PTA.

Deadline is January 31, 2013 – so kick your membership campaign into high gear for the final push for 100 percent teacher participation! Winners will be announced in February 2013.

For PTA leaders, the number 13 can be the winning number in 2013! Every time your PTA increases your membership total by 13 members over last year’s total, your PTA will be entered into a grand prize drawing. It’s that simple!

The grand prize will be an ultimate Lucky 13 gift basket filled with donations from sponsors, vendors and businesses.
