We would like to thank you for participating in the Membership Management Database Pilot being offered by National PTA in your state.
On this page you’ll find resources to help make your experience as a local leader using the membership management system run more smoothly.
Step One: Complete and Send ACH
You can find the ACH form in the Local Leader Manual. Please include the name of your PTA and PTA number on the form. It will take three business days to have your PTA’s configuration completed at National PTA. If you submitted your ACH form last year, you do not have to submit an ACH form for the new membership year if your bank account information did not change.
Step Two: Sign-In
Sign-in to your current PTA account at www.pta.org/mypta. No account? Create an account at www.pta.org/newaccount.
Note: Your local unit must be set up in the system as participating in the pilot and selling membership online in order for your members to join online. Your State PTA office can assist with updating your participation in the database. Once you have created your account, please contact the State PTA office to get set up as an officer of the Local PTA to gain online management access.
Step Three: Manage Dues Structure
Create your dues structure by adding the membership types offered with your PTA and dues amounts for each at www.pta.org/managedues. You can find instructions for managing the membership dues in the Local Leader Manual listed below under Resources.
Step Four: Ask Other Officers to Join
Ask your other officers to participate at member.pta.org/join. Once the officers join online, please promote them from member to officer. Please see the Local Leader Manual for instructions.
Note: If they do not have an account, they will need to create one first at www.pta.org/newaccount.
Step Five: Edit Officers
Your PTA’s officers can access the database and edit the titles of all officers who join online.For assistance with updating officer information, please see Editing Your Local PTA Information in the Local Leader Manual.
*If you have a VP Membership, that person should have access to the database. Please edit their title to “Membership Chair.”
Step Six: Update Your PTA Information
Verify your PTA’s information. Check your data for accuracy on the main page by clicking on the Details tab. Notify your State PTA office if there are any discrepancies.
Step Seven: Review Our Resources
Review the PTA Membership System - Local Leader Manual for how-to tools to use for each of those options and more.
