How to Grow Your PTA's Membership!
- Begin this school year with EXCITEMENT about what you are doing!! When you believe in PTA, others will too!!
- If you’d like, choose a theme to help motivate!! Class or grade level contests are great ideas, as well! Be sure you’ve included funds in your budget to help with membership promotion!!
- Have a membership table set up at school registration, all PTA functions, Open House, etc. Remember ONE card to ONE member. No Mr. and Mrs. cards. Florida PTA does not recognize family memberships.
- Don’t forget about your faculty/staff members!! Attend the “Back to School” events and encourage them to get involved and join!!
