Garden City PTA Fundraising Committees Descriptions
The Membership Committee helps to build an informed, active group of caregivers, teachers, and citizens of the community who are familiar with the Mission, Purposes, policies and programs of Garden City PTA. Membership is critical to our success. Every voice, every member matters when it comes to making your child’s education the best it can be. The more members we have, the stronger we are, and the more influence we have on decisions involving the welfare and education of our children.
The Membership Committee develops the annual campaign and calendar of activities to encourage PTA membership to all parents, teacher/staff and community members. The Committee designs and communicates all publications and promotional materials to aid in recruiting and retaining members. The Committee is also responsible for all aspects of membership from member sign-up and payment to the distribution of membership cards. Our annual membership drive is also a significant fundraiser. This Committee has Committee Chairperson(s) and School Building Representatives.
