Unit Membership Information

The brand new online membership system has proven to be a wonderful success!

We have provided you with (9) nine wonderful and informative videos to help you navigate the new system. See below and link to any one you choose!


Membership Theme for 2017-2018

Carry the Card to Be a Part of Change and Take Action logoWe hope units and regions will embrace the new theme and logo and include it on posters and handouts.

The purpose of the new logo and theme is to reflect, embrace and unite in our diversity. With each membership card comes a voice and the ability to “Impact Tomorrow, Join Today - NYS PTA Members Leading the Way”

This card shows that you have made a commitment and that you embrace the opportunity to advocate for all children. You are not alone in the endeavor to be a part of change so support your PTA today!

Membership Awards

Membership awards can be earned for many different reasons. The awards are a great way to show parents in your school how active and successful your PTA is! There are some awards that are automatically earned and others that need to be applied for (details about the application process are mailed to the unit presidents in February). Remember, though, that in order to qualify for any membership awards, a PTA unit must be in good standing.
