Tip to drive attendance: Invite your school principal to share updates and help welcome your members. Use all available communications channels to advertise your meeting with plenty of advance notice.

Confused as to whether motions need to be ratified, approved, adopted, etc? CAPTA has a sample agenda and script that you can use here.

Meeting in person and need a sign-in sheet? Here you go… customize according to your needs.

Important: Update Officer & Board Contacts in myPTEZ

Unit Presidents please update your unit roster in myPTEZ and include ALL officer and board member contacts in MyPTEZ (not just the minimum President, Treasurer, and Secretary contacts), as well as your School Principal’s email address to ensure that they don’t miss out on important communications.

MyPTEZ is available as a FREE feature to all PTA units, councils and districts in California.

Need your initial myPTEZ login? Contact Peralta Treasure Leslie Keirns at treasurer.pdpta(at)gmail.com.

After the initial registration process, your PTA will have ongoing access to generate reports and make edits as often as needed. Your information will then be available to your council, district and state PTA as appropriate, and none of the information will ever be shared outside of the association.

Click here for a tutorial on how to enter roster information into the Officer Reporting System of MyPTEZ.

Note: You do not have to be a current MyPTEZ subscriber to enter and view information, but if you are, you can immediately access the Officer/Board Member Contact system from within your unit’s existing MyPTEZ account.

A big THANK YOU for your invaluable service and commitment!
