ELECTRONIC MEMBERSHIP CARDS

NEW! Missouri PTA has created fillable PDF membership card resources that units can use to save some time!  We have the 2017-2018 membership card in a single card version and a multi card page version.
The single card can be filled out using a computer, saved as an image, and emailed to members to have on their phones.
The sheet version can be filled out and printed to hand physical cards to members.  Once you type the Unit ID and Unit Name on the first card, those fields copy to all the other cards on the sheet.  Then all you have to do is fill in member names and print!  OR you can just fill in the Unit ID and Unit Name, then print cards that member names can be written on as memberships are sold, and handed to the member right away.
