Each unit decides its own annual dues, which are put in the unit bylaws. In San Francisco this ranges from $5-$20. A portion of your PTA dues stay at the unit level, and the remainder are remitted up to District, State and National.
Each unit remits $4.75 per member per year to the District PTA, which is broken down like this:
|| Second District PTA
|| California PTA
|| National PTA
What Dues ProvideWhere Do Our Membership Dues Go?
All PTA leaders and members are volunteers, from the unit level up to the national level. The dues you remit from your unit go to pay for things like resources (the Toolkit, website, printed materials, etc.), operational expenses and reimbursements for travel expenses (when they lead trainings and participate in conferences to benefit the organization, etc.).
The California State PTA does not encourage, but rather discourages, multiple and/or family memberships. The concept of group memberships (e.g., family memberships) must include the payment of per capita dues and a membership card issued to each member.
