There are eight (8) requirements mandated and monitored by Maryland PTA to maintain the good standing of your local PTA/PTSA, known as SoCA (Standards of Continuing Affiliation) requirements. Local unit Presidents should work with the local Treasurer and Board of Directors to complete these in a timely manner. Good standing not only preserves non-profit 501(c)3 status, but it also ensures that your students can participate in the Reflections program through the National PTA level and allows PTA delegates to attend the Maryland PTA Summer Convention and cast a vote!
These resource will help keep the President and Board on top of these requirements and other must-dos for PTAs all year long. It's helpful for the President to be knowledgeable about all the financial requirements and practices, as well.
MCCPTA Blue Book form Provide this information for the MCCPTA Blue Book, or Directory, by June 30. Fill-in electronically, save as your PTA name and return to the MCCPTA Office via email or print and mail in to the office. All PTAs will receive a copy of the MCCPTA Blue Book in the fall.
MD PTA Local Unit Contact Information SheetThis information is a Maryland PTA requirement and must be on file for your PTA to receive its membership cards. The form should be completed within two (2) weeks of your PTA elections and submitted directly to MD PTA.
MCCPTA Membership Dues Invoice It is strongly recommended that local PTAs submit dues payment to MCCPTA and MD PTA at the same time (in separate payments). This practice will ensure consistency in membership records between MCCPTA and Maryland PTA, and is easier on the local Treasurer.
