Membership

The strength of PTA lies in its membership—the parents, teachers, school administrators, business leaders, and community members who devote themselves to making a positive difference in the lives of children. Members are the foundation of PTA and provide voice, passion, leadership, and hard work needed to fulfill PTA’s mission. Our membership goal is to provide resources and support to all our local PTAs so that they can achieve their individual membership goals.

Membership Themes and Ideas

Membership is the responsibility of the whole PTA board. Start your membership strategy discussions at your spring or summer retreat and create a membership plan that continues year-round. Lake Washington PTSA Council has created a month-by-month membership checklist to use for planning and implementing your campaigns.
