September 8, 2014 – Membership Monday

Happy Monday PTA Leaders!
For your Membership Monday, I want to get out FIVE very important reminder dates for you to take note of:
September 16,2014  Leader’s Project Cards are due
If you’ve been working on your Leader’s Project, please get them sent into the Missouri PTA office by the 16th!  Recipients of the Leader’s Project Award will be recognized at State Convention in October!  Not sure what the Leader’s Project is?  Follow this link to learn more.
September 22, 2014  Today’s PTA Event in St. Peter’s, MO
Missouri PTA and the Membership Outreach committee, lead by Angie Carey, are hosting our very first Today’s PTA event from 6-8pm at the Community Commons – Spencer Road Library. This event is meant to educate non-PTA schools and groups on the benefits of PTA.  Feel free to share the invitation attached with a school or district that you know does not have a PTA!
September 23, 2014  National Voter Registration Day
Please encourage your members to register to vote!  As PTA’s, our number one goal is to advocate for our children.  One of the ways we can be heard, is to vote on issues that deal with the health, safety and education of our children.  (Please remember, we are here to inform and educate members about legislation that affects our children; we do not endorse candidates.)
**September 25, 2014  DEADLINE to Register for Convention and Book Hotel Rooms**
You DO NOT want to miss the 2014 State Convention held in Chesterfield, MO October 17th-19th!  State Convention is open to ANYONE who would like to attend, so you MUST share the information regarding registration with your PTA leaders and members.  To book your hotel room, reservations MUST be made by 5pm on Sept. 25th and you will need to mention Missouri PTA to get the discounted rate.  Please do not miss this amazing opportunity to network, learn, share and grow with PTA!  The following link will take you to the Call to Convention packet.
September 28, 2014  EARLY BIRD Membership Award Deadline
The Early Bird Award is the first membership award units are eligible to apply for upon the start of the school year.  No application is necessary, simply send in any and all membership dues associated with your unit by September 28th!  Early Bird Award recipients will be recognized at State Convention.
Please be sure to share these due dates and information with the leader’s of your PTA unit.
Thank you for your dedication to the children of Missouri and have a wonderful Monday,
