Membership is All About Relationships


All too often, membership is seen as a one-time transaction. Membership is so much more!

People who understand the purpose, feel connected, seen, heard and valued are more likely to join. People want to feel like they are a part of your PTA and believe in PTA’s mission before they actually join (or renew!).

Membership is about Relationship
