National Dues Increase…Give Us Your Thoughts

The delegates in attendance at the 2019 National PTA Convention in Columbus, Ohio on June 20-23, 2019 will vote on a proposed National PTA dues increase from $2.25 per member to $3.75 per member; an increase of $1.50 per member. NCPTA delegates attending this convention want to hear from you about this proposed increase. Please take this brief survey and let our delegates know how to vote on this issue and how this increase in National PTA dues will impact your PTA.

How Will the National Dues Increase Impact Your PTA?

If a National PTA dues increase is approved by the delegates at the National PTA Convention & Expo, local PTAs will need to either increase their membership dues to include the higher National PTA dues portion or absorb it by reducing the local membership portion.

Example: The local PTA membership dues are made of three items-local membership dues, State membership dues, and National membership dues.

SAMPLE Current membership dues (PER MEMBER) for a local PTA in NC:

Local PTA Membership Dues Portion $2.00
State PTA Membership Dues Portion $1.75
National PTA Membership Dues Portion $2.25
Total Membership Dues Amount $6.00

With a $1.50 National PTA dues increase:

Option 1: Increase the membership dues amount

Local PTA Membership Dues Portion $2.00
State PTA Membership Dues Portion $1.75
National PTA Membership Dues Portion $3.75
Total Membership Dues Amount $7.50

Option 2: Absorb the membership dues amount

Local PTA Membership Dues Portion $0.50
State PTA Membership Dues Portion $1.75
National PTA Membership Dues Portion $3.75
Total Membership Dues Amount $6.00

Who decides on how to handle the dues increase?

Your Membership will have the final say on how the increase is handled at the first general membership meeting.

PLEASE NOTE- This is not considered an increase in the “Local PTA” membership dues portion; the National dues portion is increasing; therefore, this cost can be passed on to members.
