THE STATE MEMBERSHIP THEME FOR 2014-2015:
Planning for how your PTA unit will be the best it has ever been, begins with choosing a theme and setting membership goals!
Use the State Membership Theme: T.N.T. ~ Today, Not Tomorrow, or you can brainstorm one of your own. Choosing a membership theme will help you to maintain a consistent message as you promote your PTA throughout the year. Use your theme on Back to School Night, in PTA publications, on your PTA website, on bulletin boards and as you promote PTA events throughout the year, to make it recognizable.
Set membership goals. Look at last year’s membership numbers and the total population of your school. Set a goal to increase that membership 5% or 10%! Set a goal to invite more student or male members to join PTA. Set a goal to apply for Membership Awards, such as the Early Bird or Blue Seal Award. Whatever your goals are, set them and follow through!
Remember that membership is the foundation of your PTA.
Make TODAY the day that PTA is My PTA, Your PTA, Our PTA.
The time for PTA is T.N.T. ~ TODAY, NOT TOMORROW!!!
