General Session 4: Urgent Bylaw Change

There will be a meeting of the Baker Elementary PTA on Monday, May 20th at 2:35 pm to vote on changes to Article V, Section 7 of the Baker Elementary PTA bylaws regarding membership dues.

Baker Elementary PTA has been proud to offer the most accessible dues price within our council.  Although, the portion of the dues that we must pay to Georgia PTA & National PTA has increased over the years, we have kept our dues the same despite diminishing returns for our local unit.

National PTA is proposing a dues share increase of $1.50.  Delegates will vote on this change at the National Convention held June 20th – 23rd in Columbus, Ohio.  An increase is expected to pass.  Combined with the dues that we pay to Georgia PTA this means that Baker Elementary PTA will not only see diminishing returns, but a loss on every membership sold in the 2019-2020 school year unless we raise our local unit dues.

For this reason, Baker Elementary PTA’s Executive Committee is calling an emergency general session and proposes the following amendment:

Article V, Section 7 currently reads: 

Each member of this local PTA/PTSA shall pay annual dues of $5.00 to said association. The amount of such annual dues shall include the portion payable to the Georgia PTA and the portion payable to the National PTA.

Article V, Section 7 proposed amendment:

Each member of this local PTA/PTSA shall pay annual dues of $8.00 to said association. The amount of such annual dues shall include the portion payable to the Georgia PTA and the portion payable to the National PTA.

Please, remember you must be a member of Baker Elementary PTA to vote on a bylaw change.  Please, have your membership card available for verification.  Thank you for helping us advocate for all children.  Your membership matters!
