Dues Increase Messaging Resources
After 10 years of rising costs absorbed by National PTA, delegates to the 115th National PTA Convention approved a 50-cent dues increase, raising the national dues to $2.25. The dues increase had been approved by the Board of Directors and recommended by the Finance Committee. President Betsy Landers has pledged the full support of the National PTA officers, Board of Directors and staff in helping state and local units implement this dues increase.
The resources below are intended to assist state and local units in messaging the importance of the dues increase to units as well as help them in implementing the dues increase effectively. This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
