The main goals of the membership chair are to recruit and retain members who support the purposes of PTA and wish to further the goals PTA has chosen to focus on. As the membership chair, you are often the first board member a guest will encounter. Take time to be positive and encouraging so a potential member will form a great first impression of PTA!  If you need more information, contact the PTA Director of Member Services at 800-TALK-PTA.
