August 1, 2022

MEMBERSHIP TIP: Everyone can be a member of PTA! Kickstart the 22-23 Term!

THANK YOU for volunteering to be a PTA/PTSA Leader in Membership this term! This is one of the most important roles in PTA! Membership is what makes our organization effective. It’s the foundation for the advocacy, programs, and events we put on for our communities.
