There are eight (8) Standards of Continuing Affiliation (SoCA) requirements mandated and monitored by Maryland PTA to maintain the good standing of your local PTA/PTSA. As the treasurer, you are responsible for taking a lead role in completing five of them. Good standing not only preserves your non-profit 501(c)3 status, but it ensures that your students can participate in the Reflections program through the National PTA level and allows you to attend the Maryland PTA Summer Convention and cast a vote!
