Join PTA For Your Child


You Belong in PTA

Let's Grow Our PTA Family

Do you know the number one reason why people say that they haven’t yet joined PTA?

They were never ASKED to join!

You know the good work that your PTA does for your community every day—but talking about your accomplishments and inviting others to join you can be hard. That’s why we created our Membership Campaign, PTA for Your Child. But, if you’ve explored the Membership Campaign toolkit and are looking for even more ways to talk about PTA, we’ve got your back.

Start a Conversation with Anyone


The resources, tools and templates on this page are designed to help you quickly and easily start a conversation with anyone—students, families, teachers, administrators, business and community leaders, whoever— about why they, specifically, should join your PTA or PTSA!

When planning your membership recruitment efforts, keep this slogan in mind:

PTA believes that together we can make every child’s potential a reality—but we need more believers like YOU. We need YOU. Will you join us?



Getting Started

How to Create Your Own PTA Value

Before doing anything else on this page, you’ll need to explore How to Create Your Own PTA Value Message. This document will walk you step-by-step through the process of creating a custom PTA/PTSA that will appeal to the unique needs of your audience.

Questions

We have found that the most successful membership recruitment and retention conversations answer the following questions:

  1. Why join PTA/PTSA?
  2. In what ways does PTA help me?
  3. How do those ways benefit me and my child?

Answers

And, not to worry—We have already identified the three most common, and most powerful reasons why our millions of members nationwide made the decision to join PTA:

Value Area #1

PTA/PTSA Creates Connections
