Good Evening PTA Leaders!
The MORE VOICES FOR CHILDREN IN ’15 Winter Membership Challenge begins now!
There are two parts to this challenge:
1) Units that increase their membership by 15 members over and above last year’s reported membership numbers, will be recognized on the Missouri PTA website, in CONTACT e-magazine and awarded a certificate.
2) Units that show a 15% increase over last year’s reported membership numbers will be recognized on the Missouri PTA website, in CONTACT e-magazine, awarded a certificate, and entered in a drawing for $200.00!!!
All dues must be postmarked by March 21, 2015 to participate in the challenge.
The winner of the $200.00 will be announced at the Annual Meeting and Reflections Showcase on April 18, 2015.
Remember that our collective PTA voice is powerful, and we are heard across the state of Missouri when we speak on behalf of our children. The MORE VOICES FOR CHILDREN IN ’15 Winter challenge encourages you to share with your local school community what PTA is doing on behalf of children, and how they can support of all the wonderful things you do by joining PTA!
So many of you have done a wonderful job with your unit’s membership campaign. Over 80 units have seen an increase of at least one member more than last year. Congratulations on a job well done! We would love to hear your success story; and the best way to share your story is to apply for the Outstanding Outstanding Membership Campaign Award. Units in good standing for the 2014/2015 school year are welcome to apply for this award that is due by April 1, 2015. Would you like to hear about the 2013/2014 winner, Sequiota Elementary PTA, and how they ran their membership campaign? Read all about their success.
**Take note that units seeing an increase over last year’s membership by March 1, 2015, will be listed on Missouri PTA’s Honor Roll!
Congratulations to Bowerman Elementary PTA, winner of the $1000.00 NPTA Take Your Family to School Week grant and Holland Elementary PTA, winner of the NPTA Take Your Family to School Week Tool Kit. Both units are from Springfield, MO!
Congratulations to Nixa Council PTA and their units! Nixa Council PTA gets 100% for being the first council to have ALL units,including themselves, mail in their dues to Missouri PTA. We have a few councils that need just one more unit to send in their dues, and they will be at 100% as well!
April 17 & 18th, 2015 marks Missouri PTA’s Spring Annual Meeting and Reflections Showcase in Independence, MO. This will be a wonderful opportunity for training and workshops, as well as the enjoyment of celebrating and viewing Missouri’s Reflections entries. Please mark your calendars and be watching for registration information to come!
Please be sure to share this information with the leaders of your PTA unit.
Thank you for your dedication to the children of Missouri and have a wonderful Monday,
