September is Membership Month
I can’t believe it is September already! It has been a very busy couple of months for us with getting our children back in school and dealing with the continuing pandemic. Some schools have had to close and moved instruction to virtual spaces. I hope if your child's schooling has been impacted in any way, that they remain safe and healthy. Children are dealing with a lot during this unprecedented time. Similarly, the next DCCPTA General Meeting will be held via Zoom, September 23. Invite and meeting info to follow.
As our schools and schedules have changed, so to has the ability to hold local unit elections. Still, we must make sure to get officers registered and memberships paid to Florida PTA. I, along with Leisa Potter, our VP of Local Units, are available to help. We're focusing on PTA/PTSAs units who have been inactive by helping them get reorganized. If you are one of these local units, please don't hesitate to reach out for guidance.
To that end, if you are looking for ways to increase membership signups, setting up a membership table at a football game or math night for example, can be a great way to reach parents, students, and teachers alike!
Looking ahead to 2022, I am excited to share that the Florida PTA Convention will be held in Orlando at the Orlando Omni Resort Championsgate, July 21st - 24th. Be on the lookout for more information regarding schedule and this year's theme, "Got Talent!"
Have a great September!
Kay Hawkins, President
