18th District PTA Membership Theme 2022 – 2023

Membership Basics 

 

While membership is the responsibility of the entire PTA board, each PTA should have a designated membership leader. Membership chairmen are appointed; membership vice presidents are elected. For details on the responsibilities of the Membership chairman/vice president at a unit PTA, see “Job Description for Membership Chairman/Vice President” in the PTA Toolkit.

The membership chairman/vice president works with a membership committee and serves as chairman. The membership committee consists of members appointed by the president, or the president-elect if the committee is formed before the school year begins.  Committee members should include teachers and students, if appropriate, and should represent your school population.

 

Under the direction of the membership chairman/vice president, the membership committee:

  • sets membership goals,

  • designs a membership marketing plan with outreach promotions,

  • calendars events and activities throughout the school year,

  • submits a budget to support the membership program, and

  • implements and evaluates the final plan.

 

The membership plan must be approved by the executive board.
