Who's on your team?
Membership is one of the most important components of your PT(S)A! Without members, you can't accomplish anything. Without members, your advocacy isn't amplified. Without members, your board is shouting into the wind.
Because membership is so important, one person can't do it alone. Now is the time to start reaching out to your school friends and contacts and personally ask them to help you. Sure, you can send out a generic e-mail calling for help, but the reality is that 99% of people will ignore that e-mail. It is much harder to ignore someone they know asking them to do a very specific task.
Every school runs a little differently, so I can't tell you exactly how to break up the work. Here are a few suggestions for roles that can have a big impact:
Create an incentive program for people to join the PTA
Work to create incentives in the community
Hopefully that gives you some specific ideas of how to utilize people who want to help you. Don't forget to get your board involved! They should be helping you at Back to School Nights and other events. People want to meet the executive committee, so check in with them and let them know you need them at these events.
Have a great week,
