Membership News
The strength of your PTA lies in its membership—the parents, teachers, school administrators, business leaders, and community members who devote themselves to making a positive difference in the lives of children. Members are the lifeblood of PTA and provide the passion, leadership, and hard work needed to fulfill PTA’s mission.


2016 Spring Membership Campaign
April 18-May 16
Everyone knows April Showers bring May Flowers! We need a shower of new members in April. Add members April 18-May 18 and your PTA will be entered into a drawing for flowers*! When we increase our last year membership by convention we will celebrate at convention with “flowers” for all in attendance!

Create a visible poster/bulletin board, decorate with the provided printable flower pot, and add a 'flower' to the 'flower pot' every time a new member is entered.

How the Contest Works
PTAs that add members during the contest time period, are automatically entered into a drawing for a Great Wolf Lodge prize*! Adding 1-4 members = 1 entry.

Examples:
1-4 new members = 1 entry into the drawing
5-9 new members = 2 entries into the drawing
10-14 new members = 3 entries into the drawing

Incentive for Local PTAs
1. At Convention, every PTA that has grown their membership gets a ‘flower’ for each attendee (sticker for convention badge).
2. ‘Virtual flowers' to all the PTAs who grew their membership in 2015/16 (to be emailed after convention).

Note: For this contest PTAs do not need to ‘enter’ the contest! The number of members added will be calculated by the state office and all PTAs that add members will be eligible without an ‘application’ to the contest necessary.

*Great Wolf Lodge prize is intended to be used as an incentive to allow your PTA to continue to grow by offering as a membership incentive.
