1.Officer Updates – Click to download
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.
2. Standing Rules – Click to download
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 for 2018-2019, 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 – Click to download
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 into Memberhub for processing, uploaded by spreadsheet, and can also be purchased directly from the MemberHub system once your PTA has set up the memberships in your store front.
Dues are imperative to help maintain services from National and Minnesota PTA, and to maintain your PTA’s good standing.
