WHERE DO I MAIL MY PAPERS?

Truthfully, we want you to upload  your papers and filings to PTAEZ rather than mail them. 

You don't need a PTAEZ account to upload documents.   Follow the directions here:

Mail your membership checks to:

I NEED HELP RUNNING MY ELECTIONS

Excellent resources are available in the California State Toolkit.  Click on this link to review them.  Need more help?

Here's a great script to run elections: Elections Script

BANKING

Elections probably means you'll need to add and remove people who are authorized to sign checks.   With new banking laws, banks can be particular about what they'll accept to change check signers.  Follow our Banking Script , which will help you to give the bank what they need.

I'D LIKE TO RUN A BETTER MEETING

PTA meetings may be board meetings, executive committee meetings, committee meetings or general meetings.

Check your unit’s bylaws to determine how many of each type of meeting is necessary. In general, only those individuals who belong to the group (board or committee or general membership) need to be at that meeting.

TIPS FOR RUNNING MEETINGS

 

  • The president and executive board should plan association meetings ahead of time.

  • Be sure meetings are informative and of interest to your community.

  • If you have an event tied to the meeting (potluck, school district speaker on a topic of interest, Math night, etc.) you may get more people to attend.

  • Take a moment to brag about what your PTA is doing and explain activities that are coming up. This will highlight the value your PTA brings to your school and may interest some new volunteers!

  • Be excited about PTA and how members are helping to make your school a better place.

  • Thank members for joining and ask those who have not yet joined to join now.

  • Always have a membership table set up at events and provide the opportunity to join at every association meeting.

  • Keep the meeting moving along by providing copies of the necessary reports, especially those the membership needs to approve.
