Annual updates of officers in your PTA are due into the office after you have voted them in at the end of your school year. Please mail them to be received no later then July 30th each year. Include as much contact information as possible.
Your PTA should have submitted your Standing Rules by December. If you have not yet submitted Standing rules, please follow the link to the Bylaws & Standing Rules web page to read more about the new Standing Rules and view the sample. Your PTA board should review the document together, vote on the final product, and then submit them to the state. After you have submitted your Standing Rules, there is no need to submit them again in the future unless your PTA makes changes to them. If you do make changes, please follow the same procedure to vote and approve the changes, then resubmit them to the Minnesota PTA office.
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 12/30/2018) 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! Dues are imperative to help maintain services from National and Minnesota PTA, and to maintain your PTA’s good standing. Please see your Universal Bylaws ARTICLE VI – MEMBERSHIP AND DUES for more information. Curious as to what your dues go toward? Click Here.
