What Does it Cost?

There is no better value than a membership in the PTA! It costs each member only a few dollars a year. Dues are four dollars ($4.25), two dollars ($2.00) of your PTA dues goes to the Maryland PTA and two dollars and twenty-five cents ($2.25) of which goes to the National PTA. This helps provide programs and services needed in our state.  In return, the PTA you belong to is provided with publications, programs, traingings, services and valuable rescources. The balance of your dues goes to your local PTA Council and your local PTA.

As a PTA member you have a voice in legislative issues and assistance through the help of other PTA volunteers and the professional PTA staff in the office of Governmental Relations in Washington, DC. You have access to the Maryland and National PTA's professional employees and elected leaders.
