Greetings from Sibyl Wilson,
VP for Membership
It is an honor to represent you as your Vice President for Membership for 2014-2016! Our members are important to us and this year we are recommitting ourselves to exceptional member service.
To that end, we want to connect with our parents, guardians and supporters in unique ways. Taking suggestions from last year’s Membership Committee, we want to increase support to membership chairs with calls at the beginning and close of the school year, specialized training, incentives and feedback sessions.
The first opportunity for you to participate in making these connections will be at Summer Leadership Academy on August 23rd in Royal Oak. Please plan to attend and bring your entire leadership team.
Next, I want to invite you to participate in a Membership Chair Training at our State Office in Ann Arbor on October 4th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- I will introduce myself and invite you to provide feedback from your personal experiences about why you joined the PTA, how you have been served as a member and what you believe will attract new members.
- We will review membership basics, including the new membership card, proper reporting and monthly membership challenges.
- There will be an opportunity to discuss membership strategies and share ideas.
Watch your e-mail, the Weekly Updates and the Michigan PTA Facebook page for information on registering for the Membership Chair Training and future sessions. Your ideas and participation are crucial for growing our membership. Will you join us?
