Message from the Ohio PTA President

 

Welcome

The theme for my term is “Celebrating the Passion, Talent and Advocacy of our volunteers.” You are the heart of PTA and you do make a difference every day in the lives of all our children. The members of the Ohio PTA Board of Directors and I truly appreciate your work as a PTA volunteer.

What does celebrating our volunteers mean? It means recognizing the power of PTA volunteers and our commitment to providing you with the resources and services you need to continue to build strong and successful PTA units and councils. Please explore and use the resources on this website and on the National PTA website. However, this is just some of what Ohio PTA can do to help you. Your District Advisor, the Directors and Officers are available to answer your questions or provide training and workshops at your unit or council. Let us know what we can do for you!

Susan Hans

STRATEGIC AND NON-PROFIT ALLIANCES:

Strategic alliances are formalized relationships between Ohio PTA and other non-profit organizations; whereas each organization receives reciprocal benefits, including negotiated opportunities to promote programs to each organizations members, content sharing and the development of co-branded resources.

Non-Profit alliances are informal relationships that share one of more public or program foci with Ohio PTA, characterized by a sharing of information, development of joint strategies to reach common goals, sharing resources such as publications, research, advocacy activities.  These alliances may be short term and/or informal relations that can function without a structure.  Each organization retains authority and keeps resources separate.

ELEVEN REASONS WHY YOU BELONG IN PTA 
 
  1. PTA’s strength is its national membership. When PTA speaks on behalf of children and youth, we are heard from the principal’s office to the president’s office. Membership in PTA makes you part of over 100 years of service to children and schools.

  2. PTA bylaws and procedures ensure that each PTA – from the local unit to the National PTA – operates democratically and protects the rights of each member.

  3. The effectiveness of any organization is determined by the caliber of its leadership. PTA is often the training ground for community leaders because we provide printed materials and workshops on programming, budgeting, leadership skills, and parliamentary tips. 

  4. Ohio PTA leaders provide field service and counseling for problems which arise. As part of a state and national organization, local PTA units exchange ideas and gain new insights from others’ experience. 

  5. Ohio PTA and National PTA, through government and foundation grants, develop needed research and programming in vital areas such as parenting, drug and alcohol abuse, critical television viewing skills, comprehensive health education and the arts. 

  6. Ohio PTA distributes an Annual Resource Guide of valuable program suggestions, membership promotions and PTA information to each unit president. Each president also receives “Our Children” which includes “What’s Happening in Washington” from the National PTA and the Ohio PTA"Voice”. These useful periodicals are available to all members at modest subscription rates. 

  7. National PTA promotes PTA activities and membership through news releases, public service announcements on radio and television, and a public service advertising campaign in magazines. 

  8. Ohio PTA provides blanket federal income tax exemption through the Internal Revenue Service for all PTA units and councils. Your local PTA unit is considered a 501(c)(3) because of its affiliation with Ohio PTA. 

  9. Annual district conferences, state and national conventions, and workshops permit all PTA members to make their voices heard in the shaping of PTA policies. 

  10. Ohio PTA and National PTA speak out for children before the “Big Boards of Education” – the Ohio General Assembly and the United States Congress.

  11. Ohio PTA has no paid lobbyists and PTA volunteers monitor legislation, testify on bills, and keep PTA members informed on the latest educational legislative issues.
