Every unit was required to submit their initial per capita dues to 17th District by November 15th. In order to remain in good standing, each unit must have submitted per capita for at least 15 members by this date. If you have not done this yet, please contact Myra Gruschka, 17th District Financial Secretary, right away, or your unit may be in danger of losing its charter.
Please remember that your membership drives don’t end in the fall, but continue year-round! Continue to submit per capita for all of your members as you receive them on a monthly basis until March 2009. (Because PTA’s membership year ends on March 31, 2009, any per capita received after March will count to the 2009-10 school year.)
Also, please make sure that all of your members receive membership cards! Every person who joins your unit should receive their membership card so that they can be entitled to the numerous member benefits that are a part of joining PTA. Members also must have a current membership card to apply for PTA grants and scholarships and to attend the California State PTA Convention in April/May. You can download the template for printing membership cards [MS Word], and you can obtain more membership cards by contacting John Sanna, 17th District Membership Chair.
