PTA is a grassroots organization made up of parents, teachers and others around the state who have an interest in children, families and schools. PTA membership is as diverse as Clayton County is in cultures, education levels and parenting skills. By joining PTA, a member becomes part of the largest child advocacy organization in the state with over 300,000 members across Georgia.
PTA is a membership organization. People join to show support for the work you do to help children, families and schools. We rely on our 5 million members to contribute their time and skills to schools and communities from coast to coast, and overseas where U.S. Military families are stationed.
Every individual who joins PTA helps not only his or her own child but every child. Imagine how strong your community could be if every parent, every community member and every business leader got involved with PTA.
Attracting new members and retaining existing members are among the most important duties of PTA. A strong membership is essential in order for PTA to continue to be a force in decisions involving the welfare and education of children.
National PTA, Georgia PTA and Clayton County Council of PTAS offer a variety of “member benefits” to PTA/PTSA members from businesses and organizations. While some of these benefits are seasonal or event-related, others last for the entire membership year. This will help your membership numbers if your members are familiar with and able to take advantage of these benefits.
Membership is open to anyone concerned with the education, health and welfare of children and youth. For additional information, please contact our Membership Chairperson at email@example.com.
