At the May 2014 California State PTA convention, delegates adopted a motion to increase the state portion of the dues by 75¢ per member. Effective July 1, 2015, membership remittance to San Diego Unified Council of PTAs is $5.75 per capita.
On July 1 every unit PTA strikes the dues proviso printed or handwritten in their bylaws; and inserts $2.00 on the California State PTA dues line. There are three options for implementing the dues increase:
- Units can increase the amount collected from members by $.75 on July 1 without submitting bylaws through channels.
- Units can absorb the increase and remit the $.75 increase per member from the amount they currently collect from members. Members should be advised of this intent. No bylaws submittal through channels is required.
- Via a bylaws submittal through channels, units can increase their dues portion in addition to the $.75 state PTA increase. Submit bylaws for review through channels. Until the association adopts the proposed bylaws change, the “unit increase” should not be collected.
