Zoo Atlanta Educators and PTA Members Appreciation Day

Georgia PTA is pleased to announce to its membership that this year’s Zoo Atlanta Educator Appreciation Day is set for Saturday, September 6, 2014.

Georgia PTA has enjoyed a long standing partnership with our friends at Zoo Atlanta. This relationship has resulted in awesome benefits for all card-carrying PTA members. Georgia PTA would like to take this opportunity to formally express our sincere THANKS for all of the educators across the state [teachers, school and school district administrators [including our superintendents] that have already joined their local PTA/PTSAs for this new school year. If you have not yet joined for the 2014-15 year, we encourage you to do so. In addition to free admission for one PTA member per household each year on Educator’s day, families can also receive $10.00 off Zoo memberships, or Rare Care animal sponsorships as well.

2013-15 Theme Posters Now Available!

For the next two years, Georgia PTA has embraced the theme “We are Today’s  Georgia PTA – Come Join the Journey.”  In keeping with the overall  theme, we also rolled out the 2013-15 membership theme: “Hop On Board  The Membership Express Bus.” The response to both themes has been overwhelmingly positive.
Many of you have expressed interest in being  able to print and display these posters in your school.  We have  listened to your requests and at this time are happy to provide you with  means of producing copies for your use in the field.  Attached you will  find files for both posters that are already in a format that print  shop of your choice will need.
Thanks for being on board with Georgia PTA’s vision for this two-year bus journey!

Hop on Board the Membership Express Bus

We are very optimistic about what the future will bring with regard to increase of membership during our journey together over the next two years. Our new membership theme is: Hop on Board the “Membership Express” Bus! The use of the words, “hop on board” and “membership express” denotes the need to speed up efforts. Georgia PTA experienced a significant decrease in membership during 2012-13. We recognize that we are facing a challenging uphill journey as we kick off the 2013-14 year. However, we have total faith in your efforts coupled with our powerhouse membership team. Together, we can make a difference. We are planning to go places with membership on this bus journey that we have never been before. We ask each local unit to get at least 13 more members in 2013:
