Items for Good Standing

There are currently only 4 items PTAs must submit annually in order to maintain their annual Good Standing. Completion of these items is absolutely necessary to maintain a healthy nonprofit, and maintain Good Standing as a PTA affiliate in Minnesota.

1. Officer Updates

Updates to your officer list is the most critical of all your submission items. Your officer list in MemberHub should be updated when individuals are voted in, or upon any change. Without current officers listed, critical support, resources, and updates can not be shared. If you do not have officers that are filling next years roles, the current officers are responsible to be listed as the nonprofit contacts until new officers can be established or a dissolve of the PTA has been completed. If you are not able to upload your officers to Memberhub, please download and complete the form and email to the office. Download the form.

2. Standing Rules – Click to visit the Bylaws & Standing Rules Page

Your PTA should review, vote on, and submit any approved revisions to your Standing Rules to MNPTA by December of your current school year. There is no need to re-submit the Standing Rules annually, if no changes are to be made to your local-unit document on file with MNPTA.

If your unit has not yet voted on and submitted a set of Standing Rules, please refer to the Resources page to read more and view a sample. Your PTA board should review the document together, vote on the final product, and then submit your completed rules to the state as soon as possible.

3. Membership Info & Dues

Dues are a required piece of your organization to help you establish membership within your group and bring support to your unit. Minimum membership dues (as of 6/25/2019) are $6.25 per member, with $4 supporting Minnesota PTA. $2.25 is the portion which purchases each National PTA membership. We recommend that local units offer different membership levels, so each voting member can also contribute to their local PTA. For example, a $15 membership can support the local PTA with $8.75 per person!

Membership information can now be hand entered or uploaded into Memberhub for processing, and memberships can also be purchased directly from through your PTA store front in Memberhub. If you do not have access to memberhub, please download and complete this form, and return it to the office with your payment. Click to download the Dues Remittance form

Dues are imperative to help maintain services from National and Minnesota PTA, and to maintain your PTA’s good standing. Curious as to what your dues go toward? Click Here.

Your PTA is required to file a 990 annually, and we ask you submit a copy of your 990 postcard to our office to ensure that we have the most current filing year for your organization.

All Non-profit organizations are required to file taxes every fiscal year with the IRS. We ask you submit your receipt of submission to us after you file. We do not need full 990’s submitted. What we are looking for is the IRS verification of your 990 submission for each tax year. Please submit a copy to us through MemberHub and keep a copy for your records. It may look like this:
